The Ramos Gin Fizz

  • 1 ½ oz gin
  • ½ oz fresh lemon juice
  • ½ oz fresh lime juice
  • 1 oz simple syrup
  • 2 oz heavy cream
  • 1 egg white
  • Few drops of orange flower water
  • Optional secret ingredient: Few drops of vanilla extract
  • Top off with soda (Should be 1-2 oz or else you’ll be watering down the drink)

Put ingredients into shaker tin (excluding the soda water). Do a dry shake, you’ll want to shake it really well. Add the ice and re-shake to chill the drink and then double strain into a zombie glass. Next top off the glass with the soda water. The soda water acts to help create a more “stable” foam. Garnish with a straw and lime (optional).

Also note that you should chill the glass beforehand as there’s no ice in this drink.

This classic cocktail was created from New Orleans and has a long history. This was a very popular drink back in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s. For more details, check it out at Wikipedia. I hear that the original recipe calls for 12 minutes of shaking!

This is not the simplest drink to make at first. I suggest you try it out at Pourhouse and watch them make it. They make a great Ramos Gin Fizz.

Definitely a drink worth trying in your life.
