Orange Gin Fizz

orange gin fizz / a thousand threads
Here we go again with the citrus.  What can I say, there’s a lot of it in the house.  And who’s going to say no to a fresh-squeezed orange gin fizz?  Certainly not me.

There are two ways you can make this recipe.  You can go for the original – a little more sophisticated, less sweet – or you can lady it up like me and add a little extra orange juice.  Personally, the stuff is fresh… the more the better.  Also, I like the taste of orange juice more than I like the taste of club soda… I can’t be the only one.

Orange Gin Fizz
Recipe adapted from Epicurious

3 ounces gin
1 egg white
1/2 cup orange juice (1/4 cup if you’re going with the original)
Dash grenadine
3 or 4 large ice cubes (enough to make it really cold)
Club soda

Combine all ingredients except the soda in a cocktail shaker and shake vigorously. And by vigorously, I mean a lot… shake it for a full 3 minutes.

Strain into a highball glass and fill with soda (or split into two old fashioned glasses like us).
