Gin Fizz cocktail recipe – Raglan’s Raspberry Fizz
Raglan’s Raspberry Fizz. Of all the cocktails ever imagined, few are as versatile and have as much personality as the gin fizz. This class of cocktails can be anything you want them to be. Sweet or tart, frothy or flat, neat or on the rocks, gin or vodka. That being said, we believe we’ve put together the most balanced version of this classic. The sweetness from the berries undercuts the tartness of the lemon. The aroma of the mint stimulates senses beyond taste. The extra-smooth consistency of the egg white adds life to the cocktail beneath the calm of its surface. The end result – an explosion of complex flavours in perfect balance in a cocktail that looks great and tastes even better.

The history of the Gin fizz
Picture this; you’re out for the evening at an event with your friends. Hor d’oeuvres are being served and the bartender asks you for your order but you don’t know what you want. It’s too hot for a martini and the venue is a little too upscale for a pint of beer.
Then you see it.
Across the room, someone is taking their first sip of the most pristine-looking cocktail you’ve ever seen. An elegant coupe glass with a pale flicker of colour, hinting at the flavour that lies beneath the silky foam, which crests just above the lip of the glass. A perfectly made gin fizz.
The gin fizz is a historical cocktail that is traditionally made with lemon juice, sugar, egg white and, of course, gin. Don’t let its clean and light texture fool you; this cocktail is absolutely packed with flavour. The pairing of citrus and gin has been wildly praised for centuries, but it took some time before a creamy egg white finish was added and enhanced the historic combination even more. Because of this addition, more flavours can be pronounced, which inspired us to create Raglan’s Raspberry Fizz.
With a handful of fresh raspberries muddled together, we not only added another layer to the flavour profile but also gave this faultless classic a light pink hue – as if it wasn’t already appetizing enough. Coupled with the complex notes of spice and citrus in our gin, we give you a cocktail in perfect balance. Topped off with a few small mint leaves for colour, Raglan’s Raspberry Fizz is a drink that you, and everyone else in the room, won’t be able to take your eyes off of.
In order to get the most of your experience with this cocktail, consider pairing it with fresh fruit. Whether it’s a handful of berries or a few slices of peach or watermelon, the natural sugars of the fruit will couple with this drink beautifully.
