The Bitter Silver Fizz Recipe
So let’s make the drink. What I like about it besides the great flavor is the pinkish color it gets from the addition of Campari. There is also something about drinks with egg white in them that I love. The look of the drink is just great.
1.7 oz / 5 cl gin
0.3 oz / 1 cl Campari
1 oz / 3 cl lemon juice
0.7 oz / 2 cl egg white
Add all ingredients to the shaker. Add ice and shake hard for about 30 seconds. Strain into the glass and serve. Most fizz drinks are served in old fashioned glasses. Most fairly wide glasses work fine. The glass I’m using is a red wine glass without a foot. I got it at IKEA for very little money which is always nice. Good luck!
