RAMOS GIN FIZZ—­Country Club Style

1 lump Ice.

1 dash Lemon Juice.

1 dash Orange Water.

White of Egg.

1 jigger Burnette’s Old Tom Gin.

1 teaspoonful Powdered Sugar.

1 pony Milk.

1 dash Seltzer Water.

Shake well; strain into Highball glass and serve.


Use a medium size Fizz glass.

Peel a Lemon as you would an Apple.

Place the Rind or Peeling into the Fizz glass.

2 or 3 lumps of Crystal Ice.

1 Wineglass of Remsen Scotch Whiskey.

Fill up the balance with Club Soda; stir up slowly with a spoon and serve.

In this country it is often the ease that people call a Remsen Cooler where they want Old Tom Gin or Sloe Gin instead of Scotch Whiskey.  It is therefore the bartender’s duty to mix as desired.


Use a large Mixing glass; fill with Lump Ice.
