Cuties are for kids, right? FALSE! Clementines (aka Cuties for those who purchase that particular brand) are for everyone! Especially grown ups. Especially grown ups who want delicious cocktails, like this clementine gin fizz recipe!
I seriously dig these cocktails. And ever since we got our amazing Cuisinart juicer as a wedding shower gift, it has made juicing everything under the sun so much easier. And I especially love juicing these little guys!

This refreshing clementine juice is paired with gin, a homemade thyme simple syrup, and egg white, as in a traditional “fizz” cocktail. It is then finished off with a couple drops of bitters. I’ve been on a real “fizz” cocktail kick lately because I just love the frothiness that the egg white can give to a cocktail – it is such an simple and quick way to elevate a drink.
Now it’s your turn! What would be the first thing you would juice with your new juicer? Share with me by commenting below so I have some cool new ideas of things to juice!
- 1 ½ oz. gin
- ½ oz. thyme simple syrup
- 1 oz. clementine juice
- 1 egg white
- 1-2 dashes Angostura bitters
- 1 cup white sugar
- 1 cup water
- 1 bunch thyme sprigs
- Fill a champagne coupe with ice water and set aside. To a cocktail shaker filled with ice, add gin, thyme simple syrup, clementine juice, and egg white. Shake for 30-40 seconds, until ingredients are thoroughly combined and beginning to froth. Empty champagne coupe and strain contents of shaker into glass. Enjoy!
- Combine water and sugar in a small saucepan over medium heat. Stir until the sugar has dissolved. Remove from the heat and add the thyme sprigs. Cover the saucepan and allow to steep for 10 minutes. Remove thyme and strain syrup into an airtight bottle or container for storage. Chill in the refrigerator before use. Keeps for up to 4 weeks in the refrigerator.
