The fizz family of cocktails use soda and sugar for the "fizz" feel and sound and only differ from one another by the base spirit and the occasional added flavors. The Imperial Fizz, also known as the Whiskey Fizz, is a classic and a wonderful mixed drink that is very refreshing.

Traditionally, the whiskey used here has been blended, though there are many great whiskies of all styles that are perfect for a simple mixed drink like this.
