Gin Fizz

A Ginn Fizz, that’s New Orleans in a cocktail glass.

The first printed reference to “fiz” is in the 1887 edition of Jerry Thomas’s Bartender’s Guide, which contains six such recipes. The fizz became widely popular in America between 1900 and the 1940s.

Known as a hometown specialty of New Orleans, the gin fizz was so popular that bars would employ teams of bartenders that would take turns shaking the drinks.

Demand for fizzes went international at least as early as 1950, as evidenced by its inclusion in the French cook- book L’Art Culinaire Francais published that year.
