Shake things up with this frothy, fun cocktail
These silky smooth, herby gin cocktails go down super easy, and couldn’t be easier to whip up for a happy hour with friends.
The use of egg whites ensures a frothy foam that’s sure to impress your guests, and allows you to channel your inner Tom Cruise circa 1988, and show off your bartending skills with some serious shaking.
If you do a dance like Tom Cruise a la Cocktail while you shake up the egg whites, it makes it 50% less less tedious, and 100% more entertaining.
What you’ll need to make this Gin Fizz
- 1 egg white
- 2 oz of my easy Rosemary-Lemon Infused Gin
- The juice of 1/2 medium-large lemon
- 1 or 1.5 tbsp simple syrup or honey
- Citrus seltzer, such as lemon
To make the drink, you’ll simply add the ingredients to a shaker and shake the hell out of them to encourage the egg whites to get nice and frothy. Once you’ve done that, you’ll shake for another minute with some ice it get it extra cold, then strain over a glass of ice, and top with seltzer. Add some garnish for presentation, and that’s it!
Let’s talk egg whites
Using egg whites in a cocktail adds a silky texture and foam that can’t really be replicated. And as long as you use fresh, pasteurized eggs that are fresh and properly refrigerated, there’s little to no risk involved in using them in your cocktails!
Tips for making sure your egg whites do their job
To make sure you get a silky, foamy cocktail, every time- make sure to do what is called a “dry shake” first. This means you’ll want to add your cocktail ingredients to your shaker and shake VIGOROUSLY for 30 seconds to a minute to really let the eggs work their magic. Once you’ve done the dry shake, add some ice to the equation and shake again to get the drink nice and chilled, then strain over ice. This double-shake method will ensure your drink is frothy, silky, ice cold, and most importantly- delicious.
This Rosemary-Lemon Gin Fizz is super easy to make, and a fun cocktail to share with friends, and show off your home bartending skills.

I make this cocktail with my Rosemary-Lemon Infused Gin. You could also use plain gin, but highly recommend using the infused version!
If you like a sweeter cocktail, you could use 1 1/2 tbsp of simple syrup. You could also sub in honey for the simple syrup if that’s what you have on hand.
