This cocktail is as delicious as it is beautiful. Your guests will feel as though they've stepped right into Jay Gatsby's not-so-humble abode. It's effervescent, citrusy, not too sweet, and refreshing as anything. Enjoy!
Roaring 20's Gin Fizz
6 ounces gin
3 ounces lemon juice
1 1/2 ounces simple syrup
7 1/2 ounces champagne
If you want to sugar rim your glass, this is the time to do it. Dip the top of the glass into lemon juice.. Then dip the rim of the glass into the garnish of your choice. We used edible gold sugar from the cake decorating section at the craft supply store.
Pour the gin, lemon juice and simple syrup into a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake well. Fill 2 highball glasses with ice and strain the liquid into each glass. Top with champagne and serve!
