Crafting Your Gin Fizz, A Step-by-Step Guide

The Gin Fizz is a beloved classic for its delightful combination of fizzy water and the creamy smoothness of gin shaken with lemon and sugar. Here’s how you can create this cocktail masterpiece at home with either of our gin options:


50ml Snowdonia Welsh Dry Gin or Lemon Gin
25ml freshly squeezed lemon juice
2 tsp sugar syrup
Sparkling water to top up
Lemon slice for garnish


Combine the ingredient in a cocktail shaker, pour the Snowdonia Gin – Welsh Dry for a classic taste or Lemon for a tangy twist – along with lemon juice and sugar syrup.
Shake: Add a good amount of ice and shake vigorously until the shaker becomes cold to the touch. This not only chills the mix but also dilutes it slightly to enhance the flavours.
Strain and Top Up: Strain the mixture into a tall glass filled with ice, and top up with sparkling water. The fizz is crucial for that signature mouthfeel.
Garnish and Serve: Garnish with a slice of lemon. This adds a final touch of citrus aroma and a pleasing aesthetic.

Why a Gin Fizz?

The Gin Fizz appeals due to its balanced simplicity. The sharpness of the gin and lemon is mellowed by the sweetness of the sugar, while the sparkling water introduces a refreshing buoyancy that lifts the entire drink. It’s a cocktail that respects the gin’s flavours while providing a satisfying, thirst-quenching experience.

Alternating Between Welsh Dry and Lemon Gins

Choosing between our Welsh Dry and Lemon Gins depends on your flavour preferences. The Welsh Dry Gin provides a traditional, juniper-rich base with a complex layering of botanicals, perfect for the cocktail purist. On the other hand, the Lemon Gin, with its bright and forward citrus notes, offers a contemporary twist that complements the fizzy, sweet-and-sour profile of the Gin Fizz excellently.

Beyond the Gin Fizz, Exploring the Versatility of Gin

At Snowdonia Spirit Co, we encourage you to see gin not just as a component of a single cocktail but as a versatile spirit capable of enhancing many recipes. From a crisp Martini to a sultry Negroni, our gins are designed to adapt and elevate various cocktails. Experimenting with different mixers and garnishes can help you appreciate the range of flavours that gin can bring to your home bar.
