The soft, floral flavor of Beefeater Dry Summer Edition Gin inspired me to play with a fruity, herbal twist on one of my favorite cocktails of all time, the Gin Fizz
. I ended up deciding on a pomegranate fizz using lavender as an accent. At some point you will have to find a substitute for the gin because this bottle of Beefeater
will only available through the summer of 2010, so I suggest going with the lighter, new style of gins like Hendrick's or G'Vine
- anything with interesting flavors. If necessary pomegranate juice can be used and I highly recommend fresh lime juice and soda from a siphon.
