Gin Fizz à La Mode

The original recipe for the gin fizz cocktail, first invented in 1888, was practically a milkshake with ingredients including powdered sugar, cream, and egg whites. Now, more than a century later, two independent Harlem mainstays, Sugar Hill Creamery, Harlem’s only family-owned ice cream parlor, and HH Bespoke Spirits, a craft spirits brand from the family behind the legendary NYC boutique Harlem Haberdashery, are reinventing this summertime classic with the first-ever gin fizz à la mode. To kick off the evening, Petrushka Bazin Larsen of Sugar Hill Creamery and Sharene Wood of HH Bespoke Spirits sit down with food writer Ariel Lauren Wilson to talk about their work as co-owners of family businesses, both inspired by Harlem’s storied history and located just down the street from each other on Malcolm X Boulevard.

Afterwards, try gin fizz à la mode outside on our Terrace overlooking Central Park with music from DJ Erika Hamilton.
