Traditional Recipe & Specs for “The Classic Fizz Cocktail”
Classic Fizz Cocktail – Contributed by the “Cocktail Collective”
Fizzes are essentially a “traditional” sour topped with soda water (or a Collins/highball with egg white), made popular during the mid-19th century upon the advent of charged (or sparkling) water. Unless otherwise indicated, all fizzes are to be dry shaken (without ice) to emulsify the egg white, shaken again with ice, strained into a chilled fizz glass, and topped with soda.
