Whether it was Turkey Day, Christmas, or Easter there was always one adult libation my Grandfather prepared as a starter for family members during holidays and that was the Gin Fizz. A simple concoction of gin, frozen lemonade, half & half, and ice this drink goes down easier than water while guaranteeing everyone is in a cheerful and festive mood. A word of warning though, the potency and bliss of this Fizz will not materialize until half way through your second glass. So be careful how many glasses you hand out to certain family members like Uncle Norm.
And could there be a better way to ring in holidays than with a visit from the Fairy Hobmother who found me over at one of my favorite blogs, From The Bartolini Kitchens? The generous Fairy Hobmother awarded the sports-glutton.com family with an Amazon Gift Card and she’s looking to make other bloggers’ holiday wishes come true. To be considered, just leave a comment below and be sure to check out this as well as the other great products at Appliances Online.
We hope you enjoy the Fizzes!
