Edith’s Fizz is a lovely, bubbly long drink created by Dale DeGroff for the Balthazar restaurant in Manhattan. It makes for a fabulous brunch cocktail; the botanicals of the white wine aperitif, along with the maraschino and citrus, result in a flavor reminiscent of a fresh rose.
If you’re out of club soda or plain sparkling water, try substituting an orange, cherry, or lemon-flavored sparkling water instead for a nice change of pace.
Build the drink in the order given in an ice-filled tall glass. Stir gently and garnish with a half-wheel or twist of orange.
