THE COCKTAIL HOUR: Orange Ginger Fizz

When 'pumpkin spice' starts to rear its delicious little head at every corner, we know fall has arrived but around here we greet the month of September with the warm essence of ginger and can't think of a better way to say 'hello Autumn' than with one of our favorite cocktails, the Orange Ginger Fizz!

Orange Ginger Fizz

1 1/2 oz. gin
1 1/2 oz. fresh squeezed orange juice (about 1 orange)
1/2 oz. fresh lime juice
1/2 oz. ginger syrup (store bought or homemade)
4 dashes Orange Bitters (we suggest Fee Brothers)
Club soda

Combine all your ingredients except the club soda in a shaker loaded with ice.
Strain into a fresh glass filled with crushed ice.
Top with a splash of club soda and garnish with an orange slice.
