The Fitzgerald

Awaken your inner Gatsby with The Fitzgerald cocktail, a literary libation with a touch of bittersweet complexity. Perfect for a night of jazz & drink.

The Fitzgerald is a classic cocktail that is similar to a Gin Sour, but with a few unique twists. It is named after the famous American author F. Scott Fitzgerald, who was known for his love of cocktails.

The Fitzgerald is a well-balanced cocktail that is both tart and slightly sweet, with a hint of bitterness from the bitters. The gin provides a juniper-forward flavor that is complemented by the bright acidity of the lemon juice. The sugar syrup helps to round out the flavors and make the drink more palatable.

Overall, the Fitzgerald is a sophisticated and elegant cocktail that is perfect for sipping on a quiet evening or sharing with friends at a cocktail party. It is a classic recipe that has stood the test of time and remains a favorite among cocktail enthusiasts today.
