5 o’clock cocktail || sloe gin fizz
Sloe Gin is aptly named after the sloe berries that are infused into the gin. This cocktail is a classic vintage cocktail popular back in the 1940’s called the ‘Gin Fizz’. Another simple to make concoction: gin [or in this case sloe gin]; lemon juice; sugar; and carbonated water, served it in a highball glass with ice cubes. This one was enjoyed at ‘The Exchange‘ in Wicker Park [Chicago], they don’t serve food and stick purely with drinks, the staff are friendly and the place is intimate.
