Ostend Fizz

Ostend is a Belgian coastal city where you might find some of these liquors, though I doubt they even know about this drink. It is too much an American thing to mix like this. That is because the French like their creme de cassis in wine or even beer. And the Germans like to take shots of kirschwasser after dinner. Just because Belgium is between the two countries, doesn't mean they would mix their spirits like this.

The Ostend Fizz is a light and refreshing drink for all the flavor of the main ingredients. That is because lemon and sparkling water and the nature of a fizz means good warm spring day drinking.
  • 2 oz. kirschwasser (Kammer Kirsch used)
  • 1 oz. creme de cassis 
  • 1 oz. lemon juice
  • sparkling water
  • lemon slice
Combine all ingredients except sparkling water and lemon slice in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a Collins glass full of fresh ice. Top with sparkling water and stir. Garnish with the lemon slice.
