The soft, floral flavor of Beefeater Dry Summer Edition Gin inspired me to play with a fruity, herbal twist on a favorite cocktail, the Gin Fizz.

This recipe adds pomegranate via PAMA Liqueur with just a hint of lavender to accent the gin. If necessary, pomegranate juice can be used and fresh lime juice and soda from a siphon or other seltzer maker are recommended.

What You'll Need

How to Make It

  1. Pour the spirits, juice, syrup, and egg white into a cocktail shaker filled with ice.
  2. Shake vigorously (more than usual if using the egg white to ensure it is mixed thoroughly with the other ingredients).
  3. Strain into a chilled highball glass filled with ice cubes.
  4. Top off with soda water.

More Tips for the Pomegranate Gin Fizz

While the egg is optional, it is recommended as well. The egg white adds a lovely texture that is common in classic fizz drinks and, though the drink is good without it, it does make a more luscious cocktail.

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. Any gin with a soft, unique profile will work wonders here.
