Double Diamond Fizz

I have been experimenting with ‘Fizz’ cocktails lately and having lots of fun.  Basically a Fizz is a highball style cocktail using a base spirit and  a little acidic juice (usually lemon or lime) shaken over ice, lengthened by the addition of sparkling water after straining.  Depending upon the recipe, a flavouring spirit can be added and /or sugar to sweeten.  I stumbled upon the idea of using Orangina instead of sparkling water.  When I combined this combination with an Artisan American Whisky, the Double Diamond Fizz was born.

Double Diamond Fizz

1 1/2 oz Whisky
1/4  oz Curacao
juice of 1/2 fresh lemon
1/2 tsp sugar syrup

2 oz sparkling orange water (Orangina)

Shake the first four ingredients with ice in a metal shaker until frosted
Strain into a glass tumbler
Add ice-cubes
Complete with Orangina

I have found this recipe works very well for any light rye or light Irish whisky.

And Remember, the aim of my blog is not to help you drink more…it is to help you drink better!
