The Patxaran Gin Fizz

By Zack Dratch


  • 1½ ounces Tanqueray gin 
  • 1½ ounces Patxaran 
  • ¾ ounce lemon juice 
  • ¼ ounce simple syrup  
  • 1 star anise seed (for garnish)  


In a cocktail shaker over ice, combine the gin, Patxaran, lemon juice and simple syrup. If you’re unable to find Patxaran, Plymouth sloe gin is a suitable replacement. Seal the cocktail shaker and give the mix a vigorous shake. Take a highball glass with ice and strain the mix into the glass, until about half-full. Top off the drink with soda water, and garnish with a star anise seed.
