Golden Fizz

The Golden Fizz fits in the spectrum of Fizz cocktails exactly where the word "golden" typically applies. Silver Fizzes have egg white. Golden ones have the yolk. And since lime is the citrus here, i'm guessing the lemon slice garnish is really about aesthetics more than flavor.

You have to use an interesting gin here to stand up to the citrus (lime juice) and that funky thickness of egg yolk that can take on a smell of its own if your gin doesn't add flavor to it.

Here's MurLarkey ImaGination--a deep and satisfying gin with 12 botanicals that take charge of your tongue throughout the sip.
  • 2 1/2 oz. gin (MurLarkey ImaGination used)
  • 1 oz. lime juice
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1/2 tsp. sugar
  • sparkling water (Parrier used)
  • lemon slice
Combine all ingredients except sparkling water and lemon slice in a shaker with ice. Shake to chill and strain out the ice. Shake again to add foam and pour into a chilled highball glass full of fresh ice. Top with sparkling water, stir gently and garnish with the lemon slice.
