Recipe: George’s Fizz

Named in honour of Sir George Gilbert Scott, this is a light and refreshing cocktail. The potato vodka, made by Chase in England, gives it a creamy texture and the Kummel, infused with caraway, cumin and fennel, adds another dimension.

Serves 2


6 slices of lemon

80ml Chase potato vodka

pinch of saffron threads

20ml peach schnapps

10ml Kummel

30ml sugar syrup

ice cubes

soda water


Muddle the lemon slices with the vodka and saffron in a cocktail shaker or Boston glass. Alternatively, use the end of a rolling pin in a larger container to gently pound the ingredients together.

Add all remaining ingredients except the soda water, and shake with ice. Strain into two flutes and top with soda water.
