The History of the Silver Fizz

The Silver Fizz cocktail has a rich history that dates back to the late 19th century, like the Ramos Gin Fizz. The addition of soda water to the classic Fizz cocktail gave it a unique effervescence.

Over the years, the Silver Fizz has maintained its status as a beloved classic, with its timeless appeal and refreshing taste.

Preparation Tips

Serving and Enjoying

The Silver Fizz is best served in a highball or fizz glass to showcase its effervescence. It’s a versatile cocktail that can be enjoyed as a refreshing aperitif or as a delightful accompaniment to brunch or afternoon gatherings.

The frothy texture and zesty flavor make it an ideal choice for those who appreciate citrus-forward cocktails with a touch of elegance.

This drink is actually recommended as a breakfast or brunch drink because it uses a raw egg and some half-n-half for a bit of nutritional value. The flavor is a lot like lemonade, but the egg and cream take it to a whole new level – not really changing the flavor that much, but adding richness to it.

It’s also light enough to be great for barbecues and cookouts.
