The origins of the Gin Fizz cocktail
The Gin Fizz first appeared in the 1750s, at a time when scurvy was widespread among sailors undertaking long sea crossings. As the illness is caused by vitamin C deficiency, sailors were encouraged by the navy to drink gin fizz cocktails, which were rich in vitamin C, the beneficial properties of which were preserved by the alcohol.
