When we go to New Orleans we always have the Jazz Brunch at Court of Two Sisters. Heavenly! I had never enjoyed a Ramos Fizz before having brunch here – although my Mom loved them. This morning the New Orleans “bug” hit me and I had a strong need to enjoy something NOLA related…. One Ramos Gin Fizz coming up!
1 ½ oz good gin
1 dash (3 to 4 drops) orange flower water
1 large egg white
2 oz half & half
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon simple syrup
1 cup ice cubes
2 tablespoons (1 ounce) club soda
In large cocktail shaker, combine gin, orange blossom water, egg white, half-and-half, lemon juice, lime juice, and simple syrup. Shake vigorously for 25 seconds – or use an emersion blender. Add ice and shake for 30 seconds more.
Place three or four ice cubes into a glass - strain mixture into it. Slowly pour soda water down inside edge of shaker to loosen remaining froth. Gently ease soda water/froth mix onto drink and serve.
