WHAT INGREDIENTS DO I NEED TO MAKE A GIN FIZZ?
- The light, citrusy flavor of this cocktail lets the gin take center stage, so a good quality gin is recommended.
- Next, your favorite club soda to get things nice and fizzy.
- You’ll need an ounce or so of fresh lemon juice (you can use bottled lemon juice too)
- My simple syrup is perfect in this recipe. It is so easy to make and can be used in dozens of glorious cocktails.
- The trick to a great Gin Fizz is a pasteurized egg white. It may seem weird, but trust me on this one, friends, You’re welcome to make this Gin Fizz recipe with no egg, but it won’t give you the frothy, creamy texture that I promise you will love!
HOW TO MAKE GIN FIZZ:
- Pour a cup of club soda in a serving glass.
- Then in a shaker, combine two ounces of your good quality gin, an ounce of lemon juice, an ounce of Simple Syrup and one egg white.
- Give it a good dry shake (without ice). Then shake shake shake! When you think you’re done, shake some more. You want to get that egg white foamy and frothy.
- Add some ice, then give it another nice strong shake for another minute.
- Strain the gorgeous, frothy mixture into your glass of club soda.
