Henry C. Ramos created this cocktail in New Orleans in 1888 at his Imperial Cabinet Saloon. Aptly named, the Ramos Gin Fizz, it is a cross between a Gin Fizz and a milkshake. The achieve the cloud-like texture, Ramos employed a line of “shaker men” to one by one shake the drink. Anyone tasked with making one of these will certainly work up a sweat from the vigorous shaking required to properly create this foamy cocktail.
Common house hold ingredients are used, and it becomes spirit free when you leave out the gin. It blends lemon juice, lime juice, cream, an egg white, and soda water together, creating a complex and intriguing no-proof drink.
