The Fix

By George Sinclair
Listed in Jerry Thomas' bartenders guide (1862), and subsequently copied by Leo
Engel in his work, the Fix is the forefather of the Bramble. As a category, the Fix
is regarded as being dead, however it would seem that it in fact lives on, as the

Gin Fix
(Use small bar-glass.)
Take 1 large tea-spoonful of powdered white sugar dissolved in a little water.
2 dashes of Raspberry syrup.
The juice of a quarter of a lemon.
1 wine-glass of Hollands gin.

Fill up the glass two-thirds full of shaved ice, stir thoroughly, and ornament the
top with berries in season. Old Tom gin may be used if preferred.
