Our comment:

Everyone has heard of this clean, refreshing, long drink but few have actually tried it.

Variant:

With the addition of egg white this drink becomes a Silver Fizz; with egg yolk it becomes a Golden Fizz. A Royal Fizz includes one whole egg, a Diamond Fizz uses champagne instead of carbonated water, a Green Fizz has a dash of green crème de menthe and a Purple Fizz uses equal parts of sloe gin and grapefruit juice in place of gin and lemon juice.

History:

A mid-19th century classic.
