Ramos Gin Fizz


The Official Recipe for Pacific Coast Wholesale Hardwood Distributors Association Ramos Gin Fizz

It is most important that the instructions be followed to the letter and in the proper order!

Step #1 – Selecting the Glass.
Use a large wine glass with approximately a three inch stem. It is important not to use too large a glass as the ice will melt before the drink is finished, making it slurry and slushy, detracting from the frothy, fluffy consistency that it should be. A glass that is too small is inconvenient because it causes long lines waiting for a refill!

Step #2 – Preparing the Glass.
It is most important that the glass be chilled in a cooler at 36 degrees for at least 60 minutes. A light mist may be on the glass, but not frozen water. Moisten the rim of the glass with a lemon wedge and dip in powdered sugar.

Step #3 – The ingredients.

  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1 ounce Gin (good brand)
  • 1 teaspoon lime juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon superfine sugar
  • 1 egg white
  • 1/2 teaspoon orange flower water
  • 2 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 4 to 6 ice cubes

Step #4 – Blending.
Pour all of the above into a blender in the order given. Blend at a medium speed for 60 seconds.

Step #5 – Enjoy!
If all the above ingredients are used in the proper order given, a light, frosty, frothy drink will emerge that will delight all hardwood lumbermen early in the morning and make your whole day glow.
