The Fitzgerald cocktail is a classic gin-based cocktail first made by Dale DeGroff in the 1990’s, named after the famous author and drinker, F. Scott Fitzgerald. Made with gin, lemon juice, simple syrup, and Angostura bitters, the cocktail is shaken with ice and served on the rocks. It is often served with a lemon twist or garnished with a cherry. The Fitzgerald is a tangy and refreshing cocktail that has regained popularity in recent years, as the craft cocktail movement has led to a resurgence of interest in the classic cocktails.
