About our Classic Ramos Gin Fizz

One of the rare cocktails that owes its name to its inventor (and whose paternity is almost certain!), the Ramos Gin Fizz is a silky version of a traditional Fizz. It is said that when it was invented in the 1880s, Henry C. Ramos recommended shaking it for 12 minutes! Don't worry, the modern version doesn't require so much elbow grease!
