The Story behind the Fitzgerald

Dale DeGroff says:

"I made this Gin sour by adding Angostura bitters and called it the Gin Thing. One guest who enjoyed the drink was a fiction reader for the New Yorker who insisted I give the drink a classier name. Since the Hemingway Daiquiri was on the menu at the time, she thought F. Scott should get some representation too, so she suggested “The Fitzgerald.”"

Original Recipe

Shake with ice, and then strain into an Ice-filled Rocks glass. Garnish with a lemon wedge.
