Social Recipes: Ramos Gin Fizz

Henry C. Ramos invented the Ramos gin fizz in 1888 at his bar, the Imperial Cabinet Saloon on Gravier Street in New Orleans. The drink quickly became so popular that many bars serving them hired teams of young men to shake the fizzes so the many customers ordering them wouldn't have long waits.

Fortunately The Social has gotten the Ramos gin fizz down pat, and it isn't the trendiest drink in the country at the height of county fair season, so you won't have long to wait if you order one at the bar. Even better, use this helpful video to learn the recipe and technique for making your own at home. Then the longest you'll have to wait is until you're done shaking!
