Derby Fizz

A Fizz is such a delicious and refreshing way to tipple. It is strong, light tasting, and it has a richness that clings without using cream. Its best to down it without a straw so that you have to drink through the copious amounts of foam. 

I like this recipe, commemorating the Kentucky Derby. It's unusual in two ways: one, it is made with whiskey; two, it uses the whole egg. curacao is a nice touch for flavor and brightness. 

The recipe doesn't specify bourbon, but you certainly can do that. The point is you have to use American whiskey to get that vanilla and oak flavor. I felt that MurLarkey's Heritage whiskey was appropriately southern and all-American. 
  • 1 1/2 oz. whiskey (MurLarkey Heritage used. American preferred)
  • 1 tsp. curacao
  • 1 tsp. sugar syrup
  • 1 egg
  • club soda
Combine all ingredients except soda in a shaker with ice. Shake to chill, then strain out the ice and shake again to create foam. Pour into a chilled Collins glass and pour soda until the foam rises just above the top of the glass.
