Ramos Gin Fizz

Ramos Gin FizzThe Ramos Gin Fizz may just be the city of New Orlean’s biggest contribution to classic cocktails. This gin-based cocktail was created in the late 19th century by Henry C. Ramos and is a staple at the brunch table (and considered by some to be a hangover cure).

The Ramos Gin Fizz showcases the impressive qualities of egg whites in a fluffy concoction that is flavored with a hint of orange flower water.
