This winter cocktail is a cross between a Penicillin and a French 75. I’ve always thought that the Penicillin, with its ginger and honey, was the perfect whiskey sour for winter—and that many sparkling cocktails felt too light and springy for the colder months. I dubbed this tribute the Fleming Fizz in honor of Sir Alexander Fleming, the Scottish scientist who discovered penicillin antibiotics.
When made at Russell House Tavern in Boston and featured in my book, Boston Cocktails: Drunk and Told, I used two separate syrups that were already behind the bar, but here, the recipe is adapted for easier mixing at home.
This is a bold, spicy cocktail for Scotch lovers—if you prefer your ginger a little less pungent, add ¼ cup additional water and ¼ cup additional honey to the syrup. Extra syrup is excellent for sweetening tea, a hot toddy, or cocoa.
Prep: 5 mins
Put a hibiscus flower (available from lakeland.co.uk and some supermarkets) and 1 tbsp of its syrup in the bottom of a glass, then pour over prosecco. Don’t discard the flower – it tastes of raspberry and rhubarb.
Prep: 5 mins
Mix 1 tbsp sugar with ½ tsp ground cinnamon in a small dish. Decorate the rim of a champagne flute by dipping it into a saucer of water then dipping it into the sugar mixture. Pour 1 tbsp ginger syrup from a jar of stem ginger into the glass, then top with equal quantities of pear juice and prosecco. Garnish with a slice of stem ginger.
Chill 2 Collins glasses. Combine rosemary leaves and salt in a cocktail shaker and gently press out oils with a muddler, about 45 seconds. Add egg white, lemon zest, mezcal, lemon juice, and agave nectar. Cover cocktail shaker shake vigorously (without ice) until egg white is emulsified, about 20 seconds. Carefully uncover (shaker will be quite full) and add ice just to fill. Cover and shake until egg white is very frothy and cocktail is cold, about 30 seconds.
Set chilled glasses next to each other and double-strain cocktail into glasses, dividing evenly. Top off each drink with 3 oz. club soda and garnish with a rosemary sprig.

Equipment needed to make this gin fizz drink
If you’re into mixology, you probably have everything you need to make this cocktail. But if your idea of mixing a drink is pouring a glass of Champagne, (my cocktail of choice), or splashing a Coke with spiced rum, you may need to purchase a few things to make your mixology experience easier.
What is a bar spoon?
A bar spoon is a really pretty tool. It is a thin, long-handled spoon. It holds about as much as a standard teaspoon but it is usually far more decorative. It usually has a threaded handle to make it easy to hold and turn – not to mention more attractive.
Additional cocktail equipment
The drink calls for a Collins glass. This is a glass style named for the Tom Collins cocktail. It is basically a tall type of tumbler that holds somewhere between 10 and 14 ounces. You don’t necessarily have to buy Collins glasses if you already own tall tumblers.
But you will need to get a funnel if you don’t already have one. It isn’t necessary for making this version of a gin fizz, but its going to be really hard to transfer your Honey Thyme Grapefruit Elixir to the storage container without it.
