What is a kinfizz? It’s a question we get asked a lot.

In return we always ask: “Do you know what a gin fizz is?” Majority of times, people don’t. Maybe because gin (other than in combination with tonic), is that bottle you can bring to any house party and not worry that others will drink up. People either love or hate gin. But I digress.

According to the International Bartender Association, a gin fizz is: gin, lemon juice, and sugar, shaken with ice, poured into a tumbler and topped with carbonated water.

Remove the sugar, add lime juice, then you have yourself a kinfizz.

How the kinfizz cocktail came about is a story for another day. And truth be told, probably not suitable for the internet.

PS. Do you know what makes a gin fizz a royal fizz?
