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!
