Cocktail Inspiration:

I wanted to make a holiday inspired Ramos fizz. Orange and chocolate always go together well. And so does egg white, cream and orange. Long pepper adds a spicy flavor combination of cinnamon, clove or allspice. Either way it adds a holiday spice combination. The bittergringo’s aromatic bitters are heavy in vanilla and baking spices which double down on the holiday aromatics. The soda water and orange zest brighten the decadence of the cocktail.
