Thirsty Thursday: Relax with a Gin Fizz

Gin Fizz

It’s more than just alliteration; it’s a statement, a proclamation that Thursdays are when the weekend should really start. Kicking it off right is the key, and what better way than with a cocktail that not only takes the edge off, but tastes good too. A hard thing to disagree with, we know. Drink up, get down and go to sleep happy.

Building off the defining features of a classic fizz — acidic juice and carbonated water —  Michael Symon makes a cocktail that’s as refreshing as it is majestic. Lemon and lime juice, along with orange flower water infuse each sip with a citrus-sparked tang, while hints of vanilla extract help keep the acid in check. What really sets this exotic sip over the edge, though, is the inclusion of egg whites and half and half, leaving each mouthful silky smooth as it goes down.

Celebrate the onset of warmer weather and longer days with Michael’s unique Gin Fizz.

Bottoms up, folks.

Michael’s Gin Fizz
1 cocktail

Ingredients:
2 ounces gin, such as Old Tom Gin
2 ounces half-and-half
1 ounce simple syrup
3 small dashes orange flower water
2 drops vanilla extract, optional
1 egg white
Juice of 1/2 lemon
Juice of 1/2 lime
Ice
3 ounces seltzer water

Directions:
Add the gin, half-and-half, simple syrup, orange flower water, vanilla if using, egg white and lemon and lime juices in a cocktail shaker. Shake vigorously for 3 minutes, or blend with an immersion blenderuntil frothy, about 20 seconds. Pour into an ice-filled highball glass, and top with the seltzer water.

Cook’s Note: Orange flower water is available at better liquor stores and Middle Eastern markets. Be very careful when adding this to your cocktail as it can easily overwhelm the flavors in this delicious drink.
