Mediterranean Gin Fizz

The 'Fizz' first appeared as a printed recipe in 1887 in Jerry Thomas's iconic 'The Bartenders Guide' book. The 'Fizz' became wildly popular in the U.S. and was one of the trendiest cocktails between 1900s and 1940s.

After this, it gained popularity internationally.

The 'Gin Fizz' is the most iconic of all the Fizz cocktails. It's a simple mix of gin, fresh lemon juice, sugar and soda water.

It is quite similar to a 'Tom Collins', the only difference being that a 'Tom Collins' uses Old Tom gin. As Old Tom gins became less popular, and Dry Gins became the main gins on the market, the Fizz rose in popularity.
