From Chanticleer Society
  • Spirit
  • citrus juice
  • sugar (or flavored syrup)
  • water

Served in a glass of crushed ice and garnished with fruits and berries

Sometimes there is neither the time, nor the people to order up a bowl of punch. In such cases you’d want to order a fix. Originally made by combining sugar, citrus, water, and spirits, it gradually evolved to be made with a flavored syrup (usually pineapple), instead of plain sugar. It would then be poured into a glass filled with shaved or crushed ice, and then garnished with a variety of fruits and berries. While seen as a key drink for all bartenders to know prior to prohibition; it has all but disappeared since then.
