The Fitzgerald

The Fitzgerald

January 21, 2021

The Fitzgerald is a nice and simple gin based cocktail that has a little bitters added to make it taste anything but simple. The forward lemon flavor is balanced by the bitters and the Lemon Ginger shrub. I could go into the origin story of this cocktail, but to be honest I’ve lost a bit of confidence about cocktail origin stories. There’s a ton of false information out there that sounds really great, but most often doesn’t hold any substance. So I’ll save the potential false information and just leave it at the drink description. 

The Fitzgerald is super easy to throw together and you’ve most likely got everything you already need to make it.
