Gooseberry Gin Fizz

Gooseberries are lurid green in colour and a total treasure to have in your back yard.  They are edible fruits, easy to grow and are a bit daunting and evil as they have plenty of thorns and not easy to pick.  The scientific names Ribes uva-crispa, is a species of Ribes and native to Europe, the Caucasus and Northern Africa.  It is sour as acid but with a combination of brown sugar they are the best you can ever dream of.  This classic sweet gin is of unique flavour and the gooseberries bring the tartness and freshness to the drink. A delightful way to kick start a hot afternoon!
