The Lavender gin fizz is a classic drink dating back to the early 1900s. It’s a variation on the Gin Fizz, which was invented in New Orleans in the late 1800s. The first recorded recipe for the Lavender Gin Fizz was published in 1876 by Professor Jerry Thomas. The drink was created as an answer to the need for a non-alcoholic beverage that would be refreshing during hot summer months.
