Gin Fizz Cocktail

A quick guide to making the classic gin fizz cocktail

The gin fizz is a classic cocktail. Belonging to the fizz family of cocktails, this classic combination of gin, lemon juice, simple syrup and soda is different to the Tom Collins in that it is shaken and served without ice. A refreshing drink, you’d still have to drink this pretty quick unless you live in the North Pole.

How to make the Gin Fizz


  • 60ml gin (we used Baker Williams Navy Strength gin)

  • 30ml lemon juice

  • 15ml simple syrup

  • Soda water to top up


  • Put gin, lemon juice and simply syrup in a cocktail shaker.

  • Fill cocktail shaker with ice

  • Shake for about 20-30 seconds

  • Strain out the ice and pour into a glass

  • Top up the glass with soda water
