This drink belongs to the Fizz family, a group of mixed drinks that is a variation on the older sour family. The key ingredients in a Sloe Gin Fizz are citrus juice, soda water, and Sloe Gin. Sloe gin is a deep reddish purple liqueur which is made from the English blackthorn sloe berries (a relative of the plum) macerated in gin.
This version of the cocktail is shaken with egg white and served up. Modern variations are often built on ice without an egg white, creating a deeper red and plum forward flavored cocktail. The Sloe Gin fizz joins the other classic Ramos Gin Fizz in this Gin Fizz family.
