Squid Mixes: Gin Fizz
The gin fizz is the most popular of the broader category of fizz drinks which combine an alcoholic base with an acidic fruit juice and carbonated water. Recipes first appeared in print in 1887. Historically, they were particularly popular in New Orleans. My gin fizz, from The New York Bartender's Guide, involves gin, lemon juice and seltzer. Very refreshing.
