New Orleans Fizz

The Ramos gin fizz was invented in 1888 at by Henry C. Ramos at his bar, the Imperial Cabinet Saloon in New Orleans. Originally called a "New Orleans Fizz" it was one of the city's most famous cocktails before Prohibition. The drink's popularity had over 32 bartenders working at the Imperial at once making nothing but the Ramos gin fizz during the Carnival of 1915!

This tasty drink reminds me of a Gin version of Milk punch. The orange flower water gives it a unique florally flavor, while the egg white gives it a silky foamy texture.
