Fleur Gin Fizz

Fleur Gin Fizz

Fizz drinks were so wildly popular in the 1930’s and 40’s in New Orleans that there were bars dedicated exclusively to it. Governor Huey Long was known to have a penchant for the Ramos Gin Fizz which enhanced its popularity even more. This delicate, floral version really showcases the cucumber- and rose-infused flavors of Hendrick’s gin.

  • Yield: 1 cocktail

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 ounces Hendrick’s gin
  • 1/2 ounce Luxardo Maraschino cherry juice
  • 1 ounce freshly squeezed lime juice (strained)
  • 3/4 ounce condensed milk
  • 2 small dashes of rose flower water
  • 3/4 ounce egg whites
  • 1 ounce tonic water
  • Red rose petal, for garnish

Directions

  • Place ice in a Collins glass and set aside.

  • Combine all of the ingredients in a mixing glass except for the tonic. Shake for 10 seconds. Add ice to the mix and shake again for another 10 seconds. Discard the ice in the Collins glass. Pour the ingredients into a Collins glass and garnish with the rose petal.
