We love simple cocktails like this Gin Fizz from Daphne Oz and Clinton Kelly because they’re easy to throw together and there’s lots of room for variations.

Tangerines are in season now, so we decided to take advantage of that and swap out the grapefruit juice for a delicious, tangy honey tangerine juice. We also added tarragon and honey tangerine to balance out the strong fennel-infused gin.

Also, did you guys know that fennel seeds are said to help prevent bloating? True story! (Even Dr. Oz, Daphne’s dad, says so!) People will often steep fennel seeds in hot water, just like you would a hot brewed tea, to reap the benefits. We love using this tactic before squeezing ourselves into cocktails dresses for a night out. Now, we’ll totally be making these cocktails instead! Enjoy!
