101 Best New Cocktails: Geraldine’s Ginger Fizz by Chris Edwardes, Hidden House, Stari Grad, Croatia
Geraldine’s Ginger Fizz
Chris Edwardes, Hidden House, Stari Grad, Croatia
“A summer winner that outsold all the other cocktails on our list, created for the lovely Geraldine Coates when she visited Hidden.” Chris Edwardes
50 ml (1.7 oz) Beefeater gin
12.5 ml (.42 oz) elderflower liqueur
12.5 ml (.42 oz) elderflower syrup
25 ml (.8 oz) fresh lemon juice
5 turns black pepper
100 ml (3.4 oz) Sprite
1 lemon wheel, as garnish
Muddle the ginger thoroughly in a shaker. Add the remaining ingredients (except the Sprite) and as much ice as possible. Shake like your life depends upon it. Dump into a goblet and add more ice. Top with the Sprite and add the garnish and two straws.
gaz sez: I love ginger, so this baby got tested quickly, and, as expected, Chris Edwardes did a balancing act that few can even aspire to. (The black pepper brought more than its fair share to this party.) The fact that the drink is dedicated to my Sister in Gin, Geraldine Coates, had nothing to do with my love for this fine quaff. Honest!
