A Classic Cocktail, Reinvented Capo-style

Craving an afternoon cocktail, but realize it's a bit too early in the day for one? Wondering what Ramos Gin Fizz is? You can have your cake and eat it too with one pallentine (that's a gelato spoon,) Ramos Gin Fizz gelato is one of the many boozy flavors we showcase in the winter and it has a unique history in the cocktail world. It is
a drink that originated in New Orleans. It is a signature mixed drink in the South, and is now available to you in
gelato form in the North (ba dum cha.) The drink, as well as the gelato, contains gin, lemon juice, lime juice, egg white, sugar, cream, orange flower water and soda water.  It has a refreshing and satisfying flavor that needs no companion, although some Thai Coconut Milk would make an excellent pair. 

So when you feel yourself slipping into the dreary days of winter, treat yourself to a warm place to enjoy some Ramos Gin Fizz gelato. For more Ramos Gin Fizz knowledge, feel free to take a break from your day and
watch this video from master mixologist Chris McMillian that will also teach you how to make the drink for your next party. (Don't forget to top off your drink with a scoop of gelato for an adult float!)
