is a clear, perfumed distillation of fresh bitter-orange blossoms. It's not that hard a product to find, actually. I think I bought this bottle either at Whole Foods or Trader Joe's, a year or two ago. You also need to make this drink in a blender, so it becomes nice a foamy from the egg whites. I used Sweet & Sour Mix, but I just might go that extra mile and make my own with fresh squeezed lemon and lime juice, next time. Now, all I need to do is recreate The Clock Garden's delicious Greek Lemon Soup and their Welsh Rarebit that they were known for. I didn't eat them together, though. That would be an interesting combo, wouldn't it?
I'm pleased to have a piece of The Clock Garden Restaurant in my recipe file again. A printable Ramos Gin Fizz recipe is at the bottom of this post, in case you'd like to try one. I think you'll love it. I really do. By making these at home, you can drink responsibly. That's a good thing.
For New Year's Day, I think my husband and I will enjoy one of these to celebrate our fifth wedding anniversary. Yes, we're still newlyweds and I'm one very lucky woman!
Happy New Year, 2011!
