A fizz is a long drink with a spirit base (typically gin) diluted with soda water. Sugar and lemon juice are added, and often also other ingredients, such as liqueurs, egg whites, or cream. Fizz has also been used since the mid-nineteenth century as an affectionate colloquialism for champagne or similar sparkling wines. See also Buck's Fizz.
