Ramos Gin Fizz
This drink is basically sorcery. If executed correctly, it should yield a stiff, frothy foam that lifts slightly above the rim of your glass without spilling everywhere. Originally created as a breakfast cocktail, the historical New Orleans is a classic drink with a delicious creamy texture. It takes a good amount of time to create - so much so that many mixologists know this one as the most annoying cocktail to make, but the payoff is worth the work!
Start by filling a Collins glass with ice and water to chill the glass while you prepare your drink. Then, add the lemon juice, lime juice, simple syrup, heavy whipping cream, and gin to a cocktail shaker. Throw in about 1 cup of ice and shake these ingredients for at least 45 seconds. Next, strain the ingredients into a separate glass and set that aside for now. Quickly discard the ice from your shaker and add the drink back in. Next, add in 1 egg white but no ice - shake the ingredients vivaciously for at least 2 minutes (the amount of time matters!). Next, give yourself a pat on the back for that arm workout. Now, toss out the ice water from your Collins glass and pour in the drink (no need to strain). Wait a good 45 seconds to let that egg white and cream settle at the top of your drink, and after 45 seconds or so, slowly pour in your club soda directly into the center of the cream. Finish by dropping a few droplets of orange blossom water on top and a straw in the center.
