Blackberry Gin Fizz

The Blackberry Gin Fizz is a refreshing cocktail with a light, fruity flavor. It has been popular for decades and continues to be popular in the modern age. Its origins are unclear but it's believed that the drink was invented in the 1920s by Ada Coleman who was an American bartender working at what is now known as The St. Regis hotel in New York City. Other sources claim that it originated in Philadelphia, PA during the 1880s or 1890s, while some think that this drink was created by Ada Coleman’s predecessor at the St. Regis hotel - Charles Schumann-heinz. Regardless of its origin, there are many different variations on this cocktail today because of its popularity among bartenders and mixologists alike.
