The gin fizz has been a classic cocktail since the early 1900s, but I decided to shake up the original recipe with a hint of creaminess to make the perfect Easter brunch treat for adults. This drink is light and effervescent, with tropical notes of coconut and zesty lime juice, and bubbly-sweet French Lemonade Soda adds a little sparkle to every sip!

Use any gin you like when mixing up your own batch of Coconut Lime Gin Fizz. In my home, I prefer the crisp, herbaceous notes of Hendrick’s. As an added bonus, the distinctive black gin bottle looks chic on your table as you wow guests by shaking the ingredients until chilled, then pouring with an individual flourish.

A standard old fashioned glass is traditional for this cocktail, but I couldn’t resist using it to show off the beauty of my elegant champagne coupes; the wide bowl and delicate rim make an excellent place to prop a garnish of  thinly-sliced, skewered lime wheels.

Happy sipping, everyone!

    Is there a substitute for French lemonade soda?

    Has anyone ever tried it without alcohol?

      Hi Murrphy,

      This cocktail tastes delicious even with the element of gin removed–creamy coconut, zesty lime and that effervescent sparkling lemonade make a classic combo! You can follow the recipe without the gin and mix up a great nonalcoholic drink that way.

      Another option would be to add something that lends a herbal quality the way that gin does. A splash of basil simple syrup (homemade or store bought) would be our go-to here…basil tastes nothing like gin, but it goes well with coconut and lime, and would make a very elegant ‘mocktail’.

      Thanks,

    What kind of coconut milk canned or carton?

      Hi Virginia,

      That’s a great question! Laurel used canned coconut milk (a full fat version will give the best flavor) in this cocktail. Shaking thoroughly before popping open the can is a must!

      Be sure to let us know how your cocktail turns out!

      Thanks,
