This vintage cocktail was recommended to us by Jason E. Clapham who describes it as "a refreshing long drink for summer gardens in August." We agree.
This cocktail originally appears in Harry Craddock's 1930 The Savoy Cocktail Book with equal proportions crème de cassis and kirsch but the recipe we've used comes from W.J. Tarling's 1937 Café Royal Cocktail Book.
It's probable that the Ostend Fizz originated in the Kursaal Casino in Ostend, Belgium. The original beachfront casino opened in 1852 in what was then a popular upper-class resort. The casino was demolished by the German army in World War II and replaced by a modernist building designed by Léon Stynen which was completed in 1953, and, due to its architecture, listed as a monument in 1998.
