Diamond Fizz

The Diamond Fizz is pretty similar to the London French 75 except that it is served long and on the rocks. The concept is the same. I think that the cocktail is good simply because it is stronger than you  expect, which may be why it rates as a "diamond." It is also sparkly.

I picked Hendrick's gin for no other reason than it's diamond-shaped label, but it did help to class up this cocktail a bit. The sparkling wine, this dry Circova, is really the dominant flavor though. It almost doesn't come across as a gin drink anyway. It is like a sparkling lemonade with a huge punch.
  • 2 oz. gin (Hendrick's used)
  • 1/2 oz. lemon juice
  • 1 tsp. sugar
  • sparkling wine (Circova used)
Combine gin, lemon juice and sugar in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled highball or Collins glass full of fresh ice. Top with sparkling wine and stir gently.
