This any many more cocktail recipes can be found on my website LibationLab.com
Step 1: Gather Ingredients
- 2 ounces Hayman’s Old Tom gin
- 1 egg white
- 1/2 ounce lemon juice
- 1/2 ounce lime juice
- 3 dashes orange flower water
- soda water
If you don’t have an Old Tom gin, use a regular London Dry gin like Beefeater and add a barspoon of sugar.
Step 2: Simple Instructions, Complex Advice
Combine all ingredients but soda and shake with ice for 2 minutes.
Strain into a collins glass and top with soda water.
- When making the Ramos Fizz for others, use a three-piece shaker instead of a Boston shaker, because nobody wants to see the cream in their cocktail curdle with lemon juice through glass.
- Using a soda siphon enhances the drink aesthetically, because adding soda under pressure allows you to create a bubbly head on the drink that simply pouring soda will not allow.
- Lacking a siphon, you can use a trick I learned from mischievous students when I was teaching middle school. Poke or drill a hole in the cap of a plastic soda water bottle and squeeze it into the glass in a sharp stream to froth the drink.
- Drop the spring from a cocktail strainer into the shaker and shake before adding ice and shake again to expedite the emulsification of the egg white.
