Top 4 Strangest Fizzy Cocktails You Should Try
4th July 2022
Are you bored by the same drinks at every event? Looking for something different and fun in your cocktails? Look no further, because here are four new (and strange) cocktails that you should try.
1. Ramos Gin Fizz
First mixed in New Orleans in the late 1800s, the Ramos is a fun take on the traditional Gin Fizz that includes raw eggs and heavy cream. As with many raw foods, raw eggs can contain potentially harmful bacteria. Be mindful of this to avoid food poisoning symptoms.
To make this iconic drink, you will need:
• Gin, 50ml
• A splash of simple syrup
• 15ml of heavy cream
• One egg white
• 30ml of equal parts lemon and lime juice
• Three dashes of orange flower water
• A splash of club soda
Mix the gin, syrup, heavy cream, egg white, lemon/lime juice, and orange flower water. Add ice and shake well. Pour into a glass and top with the club soda.
The result is a unique feel from the combination of the egg, heavy cream, and fizzy soda. Be sure to drink it fast, in case it curdles.
2. Round Robin
Another raw egg cocktail, the Round Robin is simple and sweet. This drink also includes absinthe, which is definitely new territory for many people, but the payoff is great with an interesting flavor and wonderful texture.
For this drink, you’ll need:
• 30ml of absinthe
• 30ml of Brandy
• One egg white
• One teaspoon of sugar
Combine all ingredients and shake well. The egg white and sugar makes the drink frothy, reminiscent of carbonation. This is a strong cocktail, so drink responsibly!
3. Bloody Mary
A Bloody Mary is a more well-known cocktail, and not necessarily fizzy. That is, unless you want it to be. It’s also not for the faint of heart, featuring tomato juice, hot sauce, and a variety of garnishes like olives, celery, or pickled okra.
For a Bloody Mary of your own, you need:
• 200ml of tomato juice or tomato-vegetable juice mix
• 45ml of vodka
• A dash of hot sauce
• Two dashes of Worcestershire sauce
• Salt and black pepper
For the garnish, you can choose anything from celery, olives, pickles, pickled okra, oysters, lime, shrimp, crab, tomatoes, or anything else you can think of.
Combine all ingredients with ice and shake well. Moisten the edge of the glass and dip the rim in salt. Garnish with the food of your choice.
Bloody Mary’s are versatile and easily customizable. The only rules are what makes sense for a savory drink, and what you think tastes best. Best enjoyed with seafood and saltine crackers.
4. Fizzy Dill Martini
This martini is definitely unusual. The sour cucumber and savory mustard seed turn this into a perfect appetizer, pick-me-up, or just a break from the ordinary when you’re sick of sweets.
As a bonus, pickle juice contains important vitamins and electrolytes, especially good for when you’re feeling worn down after a night on the town.
• 50ml of vodka
• 25ml pickle brine
• 10 mustard seeds
• A spring of dill
• Pickle for garnish
• A splash of club soda
Combine the vodka, pickle brine, mustard seeds, and dill. Shake well and pour into glass. Garnish with the pickle and add the splash of club soda. Martinis aren’t traditionally fizzy, but the fizz goes well with the pickle juice for a refreshing palate cleanser.
The Bottom Line
These aren’t the weirdest cocktails out there, but they’re a good starting point for trying new things. We’ll leave you with one final tip. As with any cocktail, you can play around with the ingredients and ratios to your tastes. Have fun!
