Interesting facts

The Fizz is a type of cocktail that is distinguished by its use of carbonated water or soda. Other popular Fizz cocktails include the Gin Fizz, the Ramos Gin Fizz and the Silver Fizz.

History of the drink

The history of the Fizz is somewhat murky, but it's believed to have originated in the United States in the late 19th Century by Henry Charles Ramos. The drink was originally made with gin, lemon juice and sugar, but as it gained popularity, new variations emerged that used different spirits and mixers. The Gin Fizz is a popular variation that replaces the sugar with simple syrup and adds an egg white for frothiness. The Ramos Gin Fizz, a New Orleans specialty, takes things even further by adding cream and orange flower water to the mix. Despite its many variations, the Fizz remains a classic cocktail that is enjoyed all over the world. Its light and refreshing flavour make it a perfect choice for any occasion. Whether it's a lazy afternoon by the pool or a sophisticated evening out on the town.
