Golden Fizz

Golden Fizz egg sour with gin, lemon juice, simple syrup, a whole egg, and sparkling water

“Golden” in a drink name typically means that a whole egg (or sometimes just an egg yolk) is used, giving the drink a rich, thick lusciousness that no other ingredient can impart. Golden drinks are usually heavy, creamy sippers – but the Golden Fizz bucks this trend, using lemon juice and sparkling water to impart a beautiful lightness with an awe-inspiring foamy white cap.

We first saw this recipe in The Craft of the Cocktail, where it featured a face-numbing amount of simple syrup (in keeping with author Dale DeGroff’s well-known sweet tooth). We’ve reduced the amount of syrup by half for a more balanced drink, but feel free to add more if you’d like it sweeter.

Ingredients

Instructions

Vigorously dry-shake all ingredients first without ice, and then again with ice added. Double-strain through a fine mesh strainer into a tall, narrow glass without ice, and top with the sparkling water.
