LCBO Food & Drink Holiday 2020

Ramos Gin Fizz Notorious for requiring several minutes of shaking to create thick foam, this normally orange-blossom-kissed drink is worth the original, elaborate method—but also ideal for a holiday minimalist makeover.

Minimalists: Let your blender do the shaking and foaming for you!

MINIMAL Whipped Holiday Gin Fizz Hack this drink by blending it in batches! Sloe gin, a British holiday-favourite tipple sweet- ened with purple sloe (blackthorn) berries, gives flavour and merry colour—and stream- lines recipe ingredients from the original. Citrus wheels make quick, pretty garnishes.

MAXIMAL Cranberry Rosewater Gin Fizz Rosewater and floral Japanese gin replace Ramos’s orange note, complemented by holiday- spiced cranberry syrup. With a streamlined shaking technique and a charming apple-petal blossom perched on top, this rosy variation earns maximum points.
