BLENDED RAMOS GIN FIZZ, Perfect for Any Occasion
RAMOS GIN FIZZ - A hint of citrus with a touch of a floral note
Ramos Gin Fizz
Did you know that the Ramos Gin Fizz originated in New Orleans over one hundred years ago by owner/bartender Henry C. Ramos? Oddly as an owner of a bar, he supported the Prohibition and willingly closed his doors in 1919. Lucky for many of us, the Prohibition ended in 1933.
If you have never tried a Ramos Gin Fizz, this one might win you over. If you have had the pleasure of partaking in a Ramos Gin Fizz, then this recipe might become one of your new favorites. My friend, Jeanne, introduced me to these eons ago and they have become a tradition on our annual get-away to the coast. For some reason we started off having these at breakfast and sometimes at lunch, but they are great at any time.
