Gin Fix

  • Serves

    makes 1 Cocktail

A fix, otherwise known as a "fix-up," can be made with brandy, rum, whiskey, or gin. If you're going with gin, genever is the style to use (and the one that would have graced the drink originally).


  • 2 tsp. fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tsp. superfine sugar
  • 1 tsp. water
  • 2 oz. genever
  • Garnish with seasonal fruit
 such as blackberries


Step 1

In a small glass, stir together lemon juice, sugar, and water until sugar is dissolved.

Step 2

Stir in genever. Pour mixture into a small highball glass three-quarters filled with cracked ice. Garnish with fruit.
