The Ritz Fizz was created as the Ritz-Carlton hotel chain's signature cocktail in 1934 upon the repealing of prohibition in the United States. It was first concocted in the bar at the former Ritz-Carlton Boston Hotel (renamed the Taj Boston on January 11, 2007) in Boston, Massachusetts.

Versions[edit]

Ritz Fizz (Boston Ritz Fizz)[edit]

In a Champagne Flute glass mix:

  • 1/2 oz. (12.5 mL) Disaronno Amaretto
  • 1/2 oz. (12.5 mL) De Kuyper Blue Curacao
  • 1/2 oz. (12.5 mL) fresh lemon or lime Juice
  • Top off with Champagne.
  • Stir together.
  • Garnish with a rose petal.

Variants[edit]

  • Some recipes use Sour mix or Sweet & Sour mix instead of the lime or lemon juice.

Le Ritz Fizz (Canadian Ritz Fizz)[edit]

The Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Montreal makes their version with 1/2 oz. (12.5 mL) of apple liqueur instead of the Amaretto and Blue Curaçao and garnishes it with a sugar cube dipped in raspberry liqueur. This is probably due to copyright infringement since the Montreal Ritz-Carlton is privately owned and has not been part of the Ritz-Carlton group since the 1970s, which was when the hotelier pulled out of Montreal due to the city's economic decline.
