Sunday's Ramos Arm Workout.
In cases your FOMO is getting the best of you. Every Sunday I work at the Edition I like to put together a special throw back to differnt Classic Cocktail. Yesterday, this was the Ramos Gin Fizz. I had the pleasure of enjoying one of the most AMAZING (this word understates how delicious it was) Ramos Gin Fizz made by Zane Harris over at Asia De Cuba's new home, in the Old Butter space on Lafayette. So envious of course of Zanes skill's spent my lovely afternoon with a dozen egg's, a half gallon of cream and a whole bunch of gin. I felt like a shake weight champ by the end of my shift! 💪🏼
This classic cocktail was created by Henry C. Ramos in 1888, in his bar in New Orleans, it was originally called a "New Orleans Fizz." The Ramos brothers would hire a couple dozen "shaker boys" to shake up these labor intensive cocktails. The drink was so popular that even the "shaker boys" couldn't keep up with the demand. Over time the idea of a quality drink was replaced by a fast drink and the Ramos Gin Fizz slowly faded away.
So As you all wallow in your FOMO, enjoy the photos and maybe next Sunday you won't miss out.
