What's all the fizz about? A classic cocktail recipe that will transport you back to the Gatsby era, the gin fizz is a soft, silky and elegant drink that is easy to shake up in no time.
The fizz or the foam on top is the crowing glory so don't skip this step.
The gin fizz recipe I am enjoying lately is a pink raspberry fizz. Fresh zingy lemon pairs perfectly with the tartness of the raspberry infused gin to hold on to the memory of summer. A small amount of eggwhite is used to create the liquid meringue like foam which gives this drink it's silkiness (don't skip this step, you can't taste the egg!) The addition of club soda adds the fizz.
1 shot of raspberry infused gin
The juice of one half a lemon
half an egg white
club soda and raspberry to garnish
Add all the ingredients into a cocktail shaker and shake vigorously before straining into a coupe glass and topping with club soda.
For those who aren't up to the egg white you can substitute with aquafaba which will also help you get the foam. Aquafaba is the juice from a can of chickpeas.
