Gin Fizz Cocktail, the popular gin mix

Gin Fizz Cocktail, the popular gin mix. The Gin Fizz became an international drink that reached the Roosevelt Hotel in New Orleans due to Governor Huey Long’s fondness for said drink. In 1935 Long brought a waiter named Sam Guarino from the Roosevelt Hotel to the New Yorker Hotel in New York City to teach your staff how to make the drink and to be able to have it whenever I was there. The Roosevelt Hotel registered the name of the drink in that year.

In 1887, the first reference to “fizz” is made in Jerry Thomas Bartender’s Guide. This cocktail became very popular in America around 1900, during the dry law era in the United States. Later, in 1950, its inclusion in the French cookbook L’Art Culinaire Français was recorded. published that same year.

Although we will never know the exact origin of the Gin Fizz, it is true that it reminds us a lot of his cousin, Tom Collins, with one difference: it was slightly sweeter.
