Celebrate the Oscars with a fantastic cocktail. For the film “Shape of Water” we have collaborated with Cocktail Chameleon Author and Entertaining Expert Mark Addison who created this signature Oscar worthy cocktail, Swamp Fizz.
Fizz cocktails were at their height of popularity in the 50’s and 60’s during which the “Shape of Water” is set. The Swamp Fizz combines green Crème De Menthe (also immensely popular in the era), citrus, sugar and club soda in classic Fizz proportions with egg whites for added fizz and accentuates the Creatures’ favorite food, eggs!
