The fizz was a spinoff of the sour, made possible by the appearance of charged water.

Game plan: A fizz, or Delmonico glass is a highball-style glass but just a little shorter, with an 8- to 10-ounce capacity. Since the fizz-type drinks containing egg are served without ice, this glass is preferable to the standard highball.

  • Yield: 1 drink

  • Total: Under 5 mins 
  • Active: Under 5 mins 

Ingredients (5)

  • 1 1/2 ounces gin
  • 3/4 ounce fresh lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 ounces Rich Simple Syrup
  • 1 ounce egg, beaten
  • Club soda or seltzer


  1. Shake all ingredients except the soda with ice long and hard to completely emulsify the egg. Strain into a fizz or highball glass without ice, and top with the club soda.


A Royal Fizz is a Golden Fizz with the whole egg, not just the yolk.
