Surreau Fizz

Print Recipe
This has made its rounds on cocktail blogs in the last few years. Ben Sandrof won the 2008 St. Germain mixing context with this cocktail. Basically it's a slightly more floral variation on the Ramos Gin Fizz. Sandrof's version remains true to its inspiration with a listed epic shake time of 10-12 minutes. This cocktail is a challenging one to make, with risks all over: be careful not to curdle the cream. Don't shake it enough and the whipped light texture of the drink might not come through. Don't pull a muscle shaking the cocktail which takes longer than your average episode of a children's animate series. But if you do persevere, the end result is quite rewarding. We recommend going with a classic style gin, lest the cocktail come off as single note. Some of the more spiced style contemporary gins work well here, but I think for balance and execution of the vision you want to stick with something juniper forward.
