India Lime Fizz Cocktail
For the simple syrup: Combine the sugar and 2 cups water in a small saucepan and cook over low heat, stirring, until the sugar dissolves. Let cool. The syrup will keep in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to 1 month.
For the lime fizz: Add the egg to the cup of a dry cocktail shaker. In order, add 30 grams (about 1 ounce) simple syrup, the lime juice, gin and then rum. Shake until frothy. Add ice and shake again. Pour into a highball glass. Top with club soda and garnish with the lime wheel. Put a spoon and straw into the glass before serving.
NotesCooking Channel suggests caution in consuming raw and lightly-cooked eggs due to the risk of salmonella or other foodborne illness. To reduce this risk, we recommend you use only fresh, properly-refrigerated, clean, grade A or AA eggs with intact shells, and avoid contact between the yolks or whites and the shell. For recipes that call for eggs that are raw or undercooked when the dish is served, use shell eggs that have been treated to destroy salmonella by pasteurization or another approved method.
