About the Ramos Gin Fizz Cocktail

The fizzy Ramos Gin Fizz cocktail is all shook up.

Ingredients in the Ramos Gin Fizz Cocktail

How to make the Ramos Gin Fizz Cocktail

The secret to this drink is to shake, shake and shake some more. Add all the ingredients except the club soda to a shaker and shake vigorously without ice. Open the shaker, fill with ice and shake again. Strain into a Collins glass. Pour a little bit of club soda back and forth between the empty halves of the shaker to pick up any residual egg white, and then pour into the glass. (This will make for a frothier head.)

      This is it! I lived in New Orleans for years, but then it was mostly ‘Cuba Libre” time.
      A memorable Ramos was served me in San Francisco, so I got my recipe there.
      The seltzer is a real addition to this drink, and so is the increase in cream. I use
      even more cream and also more lime, but yours is classique
      kiss/kiss and Thanks!

  2. That’s definitely a ladies drink. And I also find the 3 dashes of Orange flower water a bit too much. Excellent refresher otherwise.
