Fool of a Fizz: Gooseberry Gin Cocktail Recipe

While the weather in July often lets us down, there’s one thing we can rely on it for - tart, fresh gooseberries, perfect for a nice gin cocktail.

Seasonal and luscious, try our Fool of a Fizz! Inspired by Ramos Gin Fizzes and that British summer staple of Gooseberry Fools, Fool of a Fizz is part cocktail, part dessert and mouthwateringly good. Taking a healthy measure of Zymurgorium Extra Gooseberry Gin Liqueur as well as some more seasonal fruits, this is the ideal drink when you don’t know if you want something sweet to eat or a tempting drink to finish. Either way, you’re sure to impress!


*You can use ready-made raspberry puree but making your own is super easy and utterly delightful. Simply add 250g of raspberries, 1 tbsp of icing sugar and 40ml of lemon juice to a pan and simmer until the raspberries break down.
