Two Saturdays ago, we started the evening with a Silver Fizz that I had spotted in Imbibe Magazine called the Lankershim Fizz. The drink was concocted by Marcos Tello and Aidan Demarest at the Bow & Truss in Los Angeles. Lankershim was the earlier name for North Hollywood from the late 19th century until 1927. The Fizz offered up a lemon aroma with hints of gin on the nose. Next, a creamy, carbonated sip contained lemon and grape flavors, and the swallow was all about the raisiny sherry and the gin's botanicals.
