      fiction: nonfiction. The Gin Fizz. What a long and sordid and delightful history. What thirsty role it played among the dandies and darlings of yesteryear. Here is a recipe for a Gin Fizz, as it is made in the 21st Century. But the perusal of the popular fiction of nearly years ago, also shows us how the Gin Fizz was made in the heyday of the Classic Cocktail.

        Love the Tom Collins? Try its frothy, bubbly cousin, the Gin Fizz. The secret to creating the perfect creaminess and froth is to shake, shake, shake—and then shake some more. Add the first four ingredients to a shaker and dry-shake (without ice) for about 10 seconds. Add 3 or 4 ice cubes and shake /5(26).   Gin is awesome, the gin fizz is a great little cocktail that brings both a foamy head (egg white) and the gin and lemon combination, with a night light flavor profile.
