Gin Fizz

The drink that has combination of sourness and fizziness and it is so refreshing.

2 shots gin

Juice of half a large lemon

5ml/1 teaspoon caster (superfine) sugar

Soda water

Shake the gin, lemon juice and sugar with ice until the sugar is properly dissolved. Pour out into a frosted, tall, narrow glass half-filled with ice, and top up with soda. Add two straws for decoration. There should ideally be a little less soda than the other ingredients but it is very much a matter of personal taste.

Tom Collins

This is similar to Gin Fizz, except that it isn’t shaken and tends to be made with a little less soda. Originally known as John Collins, after the head waiter at a London hotel in the early 19th century, it changed its name when it began to make with the Old Tom brand of gin.

2 shots gin

Juice of half a large lemon

5ml/1 teaspoon sugar

Soda water

Pour the gin and lemon juice into a frosted, tall glass half-filled with ice. Add sugar and stir to dissolve. Add roughly a measure and a half of soda, a slice of lemon and a straw.

Horse’s Neck

The name derives from the shape of the lemon rind that hangs in the glass.

1 lemon

2 shots gin

Dry ginger ale

Cut the entire rind from a lemon, spiral-fashion. Dangle it from the rim of a tall glass so that it hangs downs inside. Add plenty of cracked ice and the gin, and then top up with ginger ale.
