Tequila Fizz

This turned out to be an unnecessarily sweet drink. I'm not saying it was bad, but there were too many sources of sugar that this drink gets tipped out of the Fizz category for me.

First, there's no reason to use a whole ounce of grenadine. That's just too much sugar. The fact that ginger ale and not sparkling water is also the reason the sugar content is so high. I could see not having as much grenadine and sparkling water being a nicely balanced sour drink. Using no grenadine and ginger ale would be acceptable as well. I'll print the original recipe and let you sort out how you want to make it less sweet. For less grenadine, I would use one tablespoon not one ounce. Take it from there.
  • 3 oz. white tequila
  • 1 oz. lime juice
  • 1 oz. grenadine
  • 1 egg white
  • ginger ale
Combine tequila, juice, egg white and grenadine in a shaker with no ice. Shake to create foam. Pour into a Collins glass full of ice and top with ginger ale and stirr.
