It gained popularity during the Prohibition era, as the addition of soda water masked the taste of alcohol, making it a popular choice among speakeasies. This classic cocktail is a spin on the classic Fizz, with the addition of egg, giving it a creamy and frothy texture. The combination of tangy lemon juice, white rum, and sweet sugar syrup creates a well-balanced flavor profile that is both refreshing and indulgent. The addition of egg adds a rich and unique element, making the Chicago Fizz a must-try for cocktail connoisseurs.
