Sloe Gin Fizz

This can be served over ice, but in the late fall, we opt to have it chilled  – but no ice.   Adapted from Esquire Magazine; Betty Crocker has another take on it.  She (it?) suggests using 1 oz of sloe gin and 1 oz of regular gin.  The Guardian says to top it with champagne or Prosecco, rather than club soda – which sounds fabulous but also increases the amount of alcohol – if you’re trying to keep it lightweight.

2 oz sloe gin
1/2 oz lemon juice
1 tsp sugar
club soda (about 1/2 c)
twist of lemon (optional)

Shake the gin, lemon juice, and sugar with cracked ice in a chilled cocktail shaker. Strain into a chilled Collins glass and splash the club soda in “rather carelessly,” so that it foams.
