It may be November, but I just picked up a bottle of this Malfy Gin Rosa and it immediately reminded me of summer. So I decided to craft a Malfy summer style fizz using this gin. With hints of grapefruit (okay maybe more than hints) and more summery flavors this cocktail will immediately transport you poolside.
I’m a big gin fan which may be surprising because I’m not a 50+ English Lady, but the recent resurgence in craft gins these past few years have really made this liquor more enticing. From cocktails like my SLOE GIN GRAPEFRUIT to the most popular drink I’ve invented, THE PELAGIC COCKTAIL, there’s a gin for everyone.
How To Make A Malfy Summer Fizz
The ingredients in this are simple, but specific. Other than the Malfy gin rosa this cocktail calls for Lillet Blanc, a French apertif that is one of my secret ingredients in cooking as well. You’ll also need a can of Schweppes Bitter Lemon for the fizz. Lastly some peach nectar for a bit of sweetness.
50 ml Malfy Gin Rosa. This pink gin is based around grapefruit and it has an enticing aroma great for summer time cocktails.
25 ml Lillet Blanc. This could technically be substituted with vermouth but that will change the flavor profile.
25 ml Peach Nectar. This is really where the sweetness will come in since the Schweppes brings a balance of bitterness to the fizz.
Schweppes Bitter Lemon. Enough to fill the Collin’s glass. Use as much or as little as you want.
Add all the ingredients except the Schweppes Bitter Lemon to a cocktail shaker with some ice cubes and shake hard for a few seconds. Then pour into a Collin’s glass filled with ice and top with the Schweppes. Garnish with a smacked sprig of mint.
