Basically a Ramos Fizz is gin, lemon and lime juice, egg white, cream, powdered sugar or super fine sugar, orange flower water and some soda. This Golden Ramos Fizz replaces the lemon and lime juices with tangerine juice and the orange flower water with orange bitters. It's that simple and it's that good.
If you want to make it even more golden you can turn it into a flip by using a whole egg in place of just the egg white. Eggs bring such a lovely richness and mouth feel to a cocktail and, in my recipes, I always use pasteurized eggs so there is no worry about any contamination. You really should try at least one, and the best egg cocktails to try out at first are a Ramos Fizz or a Pisco Sour. This kind of bridges both!
GOLDEN RAMOS FIZZ
1-1/2 Oz. Plymouth Gin
1 Oz. Heavy Cream
1 Pasteurized Egg White
1 Tbsp Powdered Sugar
3 Oz. Fresh Tangerine Juice
1 Dash Orange Bitters
1 oz Soda Water
Combine all the liquid ingredients, except the bitters and garnish in a blender and dry blend for a minute to emulsify the egg white and aerate the cocktail. Transfer this to an ice filled cocktail shaker and shake vigorously for another minute to chill. Pour into a Tom Collins or rocks glass, tap the orange bitters onto the foam and garnish with a orange wheel.
With this cocktail you'll be golden, pardon the pun, and it's perfect for Oscar parties, Emmy parties or gold wedding anniversaries!
