  • Fleur Gin Fizz

    Fleur Gin Fizz

    Fizz drinks were so wildly popular in the 1930’s and 40’s in New Orleans that there were bars dedicated exclusively to it. Governor Huey Long was known to have a penchant for the Ramos Gin Fizz which enhanced its popularity even more. This delicate, floral version really showcases the cucumber- and rose-infused flavors of Hendrick’s gin.
