Ramos Fizz

Honestly I’m kind of a history buff I’ve always been somewhat interested in classic cocktails. This one happens to date back to 1888 and was originally created by Henrico C. Ramos. At one point in time it was referred to as the New Orleans Fizz. Apparently Mr. Ramos insisted each cocktail be shaken for ten minutes and actually employed “shaker boys” to rotate this awesome duty. Typically I only shake for two minutes, however If you feel up to the task give it a shot and let me know if it makes a difference!

Ingredients: 2 oz Gin, 1/2 oz lime juice, 1/2 oz lemon juice/ 1/2 oz sugar syrup, 1/2 oz single cream, 1/2 barspoon of orange flower water, 1/2 egg white, soda water, lemon and lime shavings to garnish if preferred.

  1. Add ingredients to ice filled shaker (minus soda of course) cap and shake for at least a couple of minutes.
  2. Strain into ice filled glass and top with soda
  3. Enjoy!

*Garnish with lemon and lime shavings (preference)

 

My Mexican Honey

Being a reposado fan, as well as honey lover, this is one of my all time favorites. This drink was originally created to showcase the smooth, full flavor of reposado tequila. This cocktail is a modern twist on a margarita using honey and honey dew melon to deliver an exceptionally smooth taste. Here is what you will need to create this golden perfection.

Glass: 5 oz martini

Method: shake and fine strain

Recipe: 1 and 1/2 oz of reposado tequila, 1 oz fresh honeydew melon puree, 1/3 oz lime juice, 1 barspoon of honey (adjust to your preferred taste) 1 barspoon of vanilla syrup (adjust to taste as well), ice cubes, honeydew melon to garnish

Simply add all ingredients into a mixing glass and fill with ice, cap with Boston shaker and shake for a few seconds based on preference. After that fine strain into a chilled glass and garnish with honeydew melon and voila! You have just created a delicious drink sure to be a crowd favorite.

Until next time, Cheers!
