The Irish Fizz Cocktail takes on your classic Fizz and brings some Irish ingredients into play. Perfect for those cocktail lovers of lemony acidic flavors.
Fizz cocktail variations have been around since 1875. Main types are either made with carbonated water to cause the fizz, or egg white, as this Irish Fizz was made.
In trying different variations and switching out ingredients, the egg white with lemon and powdered sugar created the best consistency and balance of flavors between the complexity of a good Irish Whiskey and the lemon’s acidity.
If you are using fresh squeezed lemon juice, you may want to reduce the amount even more, depending on how tart your lemons are. Store-bought lemon juice, consider adding in a tiny but more.
