Notes

Are raw egg whites safe to use in drinks?
There is always a risk when you use raw egg whites in recipes. If you are uncomfortable, you can omit the egg white or look for pasteurized eggs at the grocery store. The drink won’t have the same consistency or the foam if it is omitted, but it will still be good.
What is a sloe gin fizz?
A sloe gin fizz is the same kind of drink except it’s made with sloe gin which is red in color (regular gin is clear). It’s made with a type of berry which gives it the color and different flavor.
What is the difference between a Tom Collins and gin fizz?
They are almost the same except a Tom Collins is served over ice and doesn’t have the egg white.
