Plum Fizz

What a refreshing and different cocktail. The Plum Fizz is actually close to a Rickey or a Kirsh Rickey, anyway.

The difference is slivovitz, or slivovica as it is called in Croatia. This plum spirit is easy to mix with and it makes some very refreshing cocktails with a nice floral nose of fruit juices. I had to wait until plums were available in order to do the garnishes. It was a long time in coming, but well worth it.
  • 2 oz. slivovitz
  • 1/2 oz. lime juice
  • 1 tsp. sugar syrup
  • club soda
  • plum slice
Combine slivovitz, lime juice, and sugar syrup in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a Collins glass full of fresh ice. Top with club soda and stir. Garnish with a plum slice.
