The Albemarle Fizz cocktail appeared in Harry Craddock's famous "Savoy Cocktail Book" which first appeared in 1930, but this cocktail only appeared in a later edition of the book, around 1976.
The Albemarle Fizz recipe has evolved slightly over time, here is the original recipe:
- Mix the juice of half a lemon, half a teaspoon of powdered sugar and a small glass of gin in a shaker.
- Pour the mixture into a glass.
- Fill up with sparkling water.
- Add a teaspoon of raspberry syrup.
"Albemarle" is the old name of North Carolina (USA), and also the name of a city in the same state.
