Ramos Gin Fizz Cocktail, which is also known as Ramos Fizz, is a famous drink that originated from New Orleans, Louisiana, when Henry C Ramos invented it way back in 1888 at his own bar called The Imperial Cabinet Saloonin. Due to this reason Ramos Gin Fizz Cocktail was named New Orleans Fizz in the beginning. At that time Ramos Gin Fizz Cocktail was considered as one of the most popular cocktails of New Orleans as more than 20 bartenders worked at Henry’s Bar at a time, fulfilling orders for this amazing drink. In the carnival of 1915, about 32 staff members were kept only for shaking this drink because Ramos Gin Fizz Cocktail’s mixing time was very time consuming.
Governor Huey Long’s was another person who made Ramos Gin Fizz Cocktail very famous as he was too fond of this drink. It was due to his fondness that he brought a bartender who was known to make Ramos Gin Fizz Cocktail to Roosevelt Hotel in New York so he could teach the bartenders of the hotel how to make it so Long could also enjoy it whenever he visited this city.
This drink has not lost its popularity even today. In fact now its fame has grown out of the United States.
