Nothing beats the effervescent tingle of a fizz cocktail! This delicious Pom Fizz is a delicious gin cocktail for any occasion.

We’ve done our fair share of gin cocktails here on the Brio Smart Life Blog, but gin fizzes stand in a class of their own.

Like spritz cocktails, fizzes give your cocktails a sparkling mouthfeel that you don’t get from smoother gin cocktails, like martinis. They also tend to be lower in calories.

The traditional Gin Fizz recipe pairs gin, lime juice, club soda, and sometimes egg white. This cocktail does not contain any egg white, making it a diet friendly cocktail.

This Pom Fizz amps up the citrus taste of the classic gin fizz with the slightly sour-sweet taste of pomegranate juice. R.W. Knudsen’s Just Pomegranate Juice is a great choice, but you can use any pomegranate juice you like. Merely adjust the simple syrup accordingly to offset the sugar in the juice.

When selecting the perfect gin to pair with fruity flavors, I tend to favor the botanical essences of New Wave gins. These gins soften the traditional juniper taste of gin by putting emphasis on other herbal flavors.

In the case of Wilder Gin, its flavors are sage and other mountain herbs. When blended with pomegranate juice, these botanical flavors transport you into a little heavenly escape.

This is how you make a Pom Fizz Cocktail!

Drink Of The Week: Rosemary Gin Fizz

There’s nothing more comforting than sitting on the porch on warm days and nights with a good drink. Down south, sipping cocktails, like this Drink of the Week, is a Springtime and Summertime staple.

After her death, a friend of Julia Child’s told a story of when a sommelier asked her to name her favorite wine, she replied, “Gin.”. Obviously, the Queen of French Cooking [and butter…sorry Paula] knew how to party. Much like Julia Child, we love us some Gin here in the Brio kitchen, and this Rosemary Gin Fizz is to die for!

Folks have a love-hate relationship with gin. I have heard it described as “Christmas in a bottle” for its pine-like aroma, and I happen to agree. I love the smell of gin. Though I will never be one of those folks who can drink gin straight, some gin cocktails happen to be my favorites.

This Rosemary Gin Fizz happens to be one of them.

The Gin Fizz has many variations. They come in numerous flavors, with different ingredients, some of which include using eggs. It’s added for frothiness, but all I can say is – YUCK! I can’t understand how people can drink raw eggs, let alone add them to alcohol.

In this Rosemary Gin Fizz – you guessed it – we added the herbal taste of Rosemary to the mix. We also opted for honey instead of granulated sugar.

Honey is delicious, nutritious and it’s healthier than regular sugar. Plus, you can use creamed, raw, or infused honey, like elderflower or thyme honey, for this recipe. We used Vintage Bee Creamed Honey. I personally love the way their Raw Creamed Honey with Lemon tastes, and since it’s made here in North Carolina. It also pairs very well with whiskey in a Hot Toddy.

Grab your Drink of the Week glass and enjoy yourself a Rosemary Gin Fizz!
