SNOWBALL FIZZ Cocktail
(Makes 1 cocktail)
2 ounces gin
2/3 cup orange juice
1/3 cup grapefruit juice
2 Tablespoons sugar
Bottled cherries for garnish, pitted & drained
Combine the gin, orange and grapefruit juices, sugar and place in a shaker. Shake vigorously. Pour into a cocktail or wine glass. Garnish with a cherry on the rim. Serve cold.
Recipe Notes: Gin Fizzes are light, refreshing sour-based cocktails with the usual addition of club soda, lemon juice or something citrusy. A gin fizz is a good thirst-quencher for warmer months, but this is a good, easy drink to put together all year round. This recipe is a sweeter adaptation from usual Gin Fizzes.* *This recipe was adapted from : “Field Guide to Cocktails” by Rob Chirico , Quirk Books
