How to make:

SHAKE first 5 ingredients with ice and strain back into shaker. DRY SHAKE (without ice) and slowly pour 2/3rds of the contents of the shaker from a higher than normal height into a chilled empty glass (no ice in glass) while simultaneously pouring soda with your other hand. The cocktail and soda should form a single stream of liquid falling into the glass.

As when pouring a Guinness, to achieve a perfect head on a fizz, the cocktail should be left to settle for at least a minute before topping off with what remains in the shaker. Ideally, during the settling period, the glass should be placed in a glass froster/fridge/freezer. As the final contents of the shaker are poured into the glass so the head should rise like a souffle.

2 fl oz Old Tom gin
1 fl oz Lime juice (freshly squeezed)
1/2 fl oz Raspberry (framboise) sugar syrup
3 drop Orange flower/blossom water
2/3 fl oz Pasteurised egg white
Top up with Thomas Henry Soda Water
