About the Gin Fizz Cocktail

Love the Tom Collins? Try its frothy, bubbly cousin, the Gin Fizz. The secret to creating the perfect creaminess and froth is to shake, shake, shake—and then shake some more.

Ingredients in the Gin Fizz Cocktail

  • 1 oz Club soda
  • 2 oz Plymouth Gin
  • 1 oz Lemon juice
  • .75 oz Simple syrup (one part sugar, one part water)
  • 1 Egg white (about .5 oz)

Glass: Fizz or Collins

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.
