Friday Night Cocktail

I made this for my birthday party and Jonny said that he thought it smelled like ‘summer in a glass’, so that’s going to be it’s name.Like all good things, I can’t really take any credit for this. I copied it Back to Her Roots and she (or more to the point, her husband) copied it from a restaurant they’d been to. All I did was add a home-made maraschino cherry to it, which turned a great shade of pink, which is how cocktails happen.

A word on the fizz. Although the original specifies champagne, I’ve used a French fizz  and a Prosecco both of which worked fine although I would go for the French for preference or maybe try a Cava.

What

1 oz gin

1/2 oz of sugar syrup

1/2 oz of lemon juice

maraschino cherry

fizz to top up

How

1) Put the gin and lemon juice in a glass and stir.

2) Add the cherry

3) Top up with fizz

4) Drink!
