Gin Fizz Recipe

Gin Fizz

A Gin Fizz has a light, sour flavor with refreshing carbonation and frothy egg white.


2 oz gin
1 oz lemon juice
.75 oz simple syrup
1 oz soda water
1 egg white

Preparation: How to make a Gin Fizz

  1. Add all ingredients except soda water to an empty cocktail shaker and shake for 10 seconds or so.
  2. Add ice to the cocktail shaker and shake vigorously until chilled, about 30 seconds.
  3. Add the soda water to a chilled highball glass.
  4. Double-strain the shaken mixture into the glass. (This is accomplished by using a Hawthorne strainer on the shaker and pouring it through a fine mesh strainer held in your other hand. Then you can shake the egg whites in the mesh strainer over the surface of the drink to leave a nice layer of foam on top.)
