Fancy a Gin Fizz – Here’s a couple of winners
A Fizz is basically a base spirit – usually Gin- citrus and sugar made to fizz with a soda and sometimes an egg white to give a luxurious creamy head. I have a complicated relationship with eggs on the whole, fried and runny NO, mayonnaise YES, soft boiled or poached NO, lemon meringue YES. Putting egg white into my cocktails seemed disgusting and so I have always opted out, until I was introduced to Miss Sloe Gin Fizz. Her velvet pink dress and white feather boa utterly seduced me. Sugar and egg white are, after all meringue, I argued as I shook like a pro waiting for the magic to happen.
Why hello Miss Fizz so very nice to drink you. For you I will grit my teeth and put egg white into my shaker.
