Alex Jump’s Ramos Gin Fizz

Death & Co. | Denver

In a blind-tasting of 10 Ramos Gin Fizzes from some of America’s best bartenders, this version of the NOLA classic from Alex Jump of Death & Co. Denver made the cut with a surprising technique that gives the drink a singular softness.


Serving: 1

  • 2 ounces Plymouth gin
  • 1 ounce simple syrup, (1:1, sugar to water)
  • 1 ounce heavy cream
  • 1/2 ounce lemon juice
  • 1/2 ounce lime juice
  • 1 egg white
  • 6 drops orange flower water
  • 2 ounces club soda

  1. Combine all ingredients except club soda in a mixing tin, then dry shake.
  2. Add three ice cubes to the tin, and shake until nearly dissolved.
  3. Double-strain into a Collins glass, and top with club soda until the drink's meringue rises above the lip of the glass.
