How to Make a Ramos Gin Fizz


How to Cocktail: Ramos Gin Fizz

This 19th-century New Orleans brunch classic is light, airy and refreshing—and a workout for your arms! Top San Francisco bartender Jen Ackrill shows you how to make a Ramos Gin Fizz.


  • 2 oz Tanqueray No. TEN Gin
  • .5 oz Heavy cream
  • .5 oz Fresh lemon juice
  • .5 oz Fresh lime juice
  • .75 oz Simple syrup (one part sugar, one part water)
  • 3 dashes Orange flower water
  • 1 Fresh egg white
  • Club soda
  • Glass: Collins


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.)
