Le Grand Fizz

A hot summer day calls for a long and fizzy cocktail that’s light, citrusy and slightly sweet. I was served just the one at the Grey Goose Canada Boulangerie Bleue event, held at Charbar last night.

Le Grand Fizz is Grey Goose’s take on a classic fizz, with vodka in place of gin, lime juice rather than lemon, and St-Germain elderflower liqueur as the sweetening agent. This drink is super refreshing and not too sweet. Best of all, it gives us another reason to drink St-Germain, a French liqueur that’s made from macerated elderflower blossoms and tastes like honey, flowers and sunshine. And it goes without saying, Le Grand Fizz should be enjoyed on a sunny patio, preferably one with a view of The Bow.

This vodka take on a fizz tastes like summer in a glass.
