Ramos gin fizz

Ramos gin fizz cocktail
The Ramos gin fizz is an unusual, old cocktail recipe where sweet and sour come together in an eye-catching smooth, foamy drink.
The pleasing taste of a Ramos gin fizz comes from its large list of ingredients; gin, citrus juices, egg white, cream, and orange flower water, all topped up with some soda. It certainly sounds like an unusual mix, but the taste of a Ramos gin fizz more than warrants the process of making it.
Ramos gin fizz was created by Henry Ramos in 1888 in one of his bars in New Orleans. It was initially known as New Orleans Fizz and at the time was one of the most popular cocktails in the city.
