Berta's Special

A dry and fizzy cocktail that might be a more appropriate Tequila Fizz than the recipe posted with this name. It is sour and sufficiently dry with a great egg white foam on top. So much about this drink is doing it right. It is dry and less sugary than a Margarita with orange bitters replacing the triple sec.
Then there's the addition of honey for sweetness that sets the drink apart from other fizzes. Maybe that's why this is Berta's Special.
  • 2 oz. gold tequila (Sauza anejo used)
  • 1 oz. lime juice
  • 1 egg white
  • 5-7 dashes of orange bitters
  • sparkling water
  • lime slice
Combine the first four ingredients in a shaker with no ice. Shake to produce foam. Add ice and shake to chill and pour into a chilled Collins glass. Top with sparkling water, garnish with the lime slice.
