The Fitzgerald is a sophisticated, light citrus-flavoured cocktail with a splash of aromatic bitters to make it interesting. Like a gin sour without the froth! This cocktail, invented by Dale DeGroff in 2002, is named for the famous writer of the same name. Although a recent invention, its light classic flavours hearken back cocktails of the pre-prohibition era.

Simple and easy to make and a great gin cocktail for when you are so tired of drinking your gin with tonic. Strong, but easy sipping! 


  • 50ml Deep South Three Citrus Gin

  • 15ml Sugar syrup
  • Ice cubes

To make

  1. Shake all ingredients in a cocktail shaker
