Gin Fizz

Gin Fizz cocktail with gin, lemon juice, simple syrup, and egg white

The Gin Fizz is the grandaddy of all fizz cocktails. We don’t know who first had the idea of shaking around an egg white with a bunch of gin and sugar, but we salute them!

Like all egg drinks, you should double-strain before serving – once through your cocktail strainer, and then through a fine wire-mesh strainer into the serving glass.

Don’t serve the Gin Fizz over ice; it’s meant to be served very cold and drunk very quickly, without any extra dilution.

Ingredients

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app puts this drink – and hundreds more – in your pocket, and tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have at home. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on a drink.

This app ROCKS!!!

I've used a number of mix drink apps, and this one is by FAR the BEST! I've made a couple dozen drinks so far, and they're delicious. It suits my quality wants while (more importantly) suiting my inherent laziness. You put in what you have on hand, and it automatically lists all the drinks you can make! There's info on all the ingredients, which is pretty neat to learn some backstory. What I truly like is I can click an ingredient and it shows how many more drinks I can make. It's pretty fun picking up a new item and seeing 8 new drinks to try. There's a setting on the iPad that locks the app on so people can switch on the mixing app without letting anyone out of it, so I leave it by the bar and people can use it without worry of people snooping around. ;) The combination of all the drinks and this app that makes searching for, and making a drink, easy peezy lemon squeezey, and gives a real feeling of sophistication.
