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
- Add all ingredients except soda water to an empty cocktail shaker and shake for 10 seconds or so.
- Add ice to the cocktail shaker and shake vigorously until chilled, about 30 seconds.
- Add the soda water to a chilled highball glass.
- 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.)
