Sloe Gin Fizz

Sloe Gin Fizz cocktail with gin, sloe gin, lemon juice, simple syrup, egg white, and sparkling water

The Sloe Gin Fizz is an old drink that picked up a bad rap, likely due to the ubiquity of knockoff sloe gin that was common in the US until recently. Real sloe gin is made with English blackthorn sloe berries macerated in gin, and in the last decade it’s become much easier to find it across the globe.

PUNCH, a web magazine devoted to cocktail culture, took the classic recipe and modernized it, replacing half of the sloe gin with regular ol’ gin and including the sometimes-optional egg white as standard (or aquafaba, a vegan substitute). It’s the perfect fix, and the resulting recipe is as delicious as it is beautiful.

Ingredients

Instructions

Add the sparkling water to an empty, chilled fizz or coupe glass.

Dry-shake all remaining ingredients first without ice, than again with ice added. Double-strain through a fine mesh strainer, over the sparkling water in the glass.

Terrific Design!

Absolutely love this app. Gives a great visual representation of the ingredients and the user interface is well designed. Been using it to learn how to make cocktails, the descriptions are great about the drinks. As a novice barman, I love that I am learning the origin of the drink and alternative ways to make the drink. Be prepared to have a wide range of alcohol at you disposal! I can make heaps of drinks with the decent home collection I have, but seeing all the recipes what I could make gets me excited! Highly recommended, everyone loves the person who makes excellent drinks!
