Fizz drinks were so wildly popular in the 1930’s and 40’s in New Orleans that there were bars dedicated exclusively to it. Governor Huey Long was known to have a penchant for the Ramos Gin Fizz which enhanced its popularity even more. This delicate, floral version really showcases the cucumber- and rose-infused flavors of Hendrick’s gin.
