How to make the Gin Fizz Cocktail

Add the club soda to a Fizz or Collins glass and set aside. Add the remaining ingredients to a shaker and shake without ice for about 10 seconds. Add 3 or 4 ice cubes and shake very well. Double-strain into the prepared glass.

  1. Tried this drink. Tastes amazing but I was disappointed that I didn’t get as much head as the image shows. Did I not shake it long enough?

    • To be honest, probably. You’ve gotta really go to town with the shaking to get that much froth. One thing that helps is to let your egg white sit at room temperature for a while before making the drink—cold egg white doesn’t whip up as easily.
