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.
