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
- In a small glass, stir together lemon juice, sugar, and water until sugar is dissolved.
- Stir in genever. Pour mixture into a small highball glass three-quarters filled with cracked ice. Garnish with fruit.
