Henry C. Ramos's Gin Fizz

Henry C. Ramos's Gin Fizz
A mix of orange flower water and gin gives this venerable New Orleans cocktail a floral character with hints of juniper, while an egg white and heavy cream give it frothy body. The longer you shake the cocktail, the frothier it gets. See the recipe for Henry C. Ramos's Gin Fizz »Penny De Los Santos
