Our comment:

A delicate floral drink that is so creamy smooth that it is almost fluffy.


An adaptation of the Ramos Fizz. In his 1939 The Gentleman's Companion, Charles H. Baker Jr. credits this drinks creation to Ahmed Soliman a manufacturer and seller of Perfume Essences in the Khan el Kalili Bazaar, Cairo.
