Taste a creamy, dreamy blueberry-citrus take on a Ramos Gin Fizz mocktail. Put down the liquor and use a bit of tea, some simple syrup, cream, blueberry syrup and egg white to create this stunning mocktail that can stand beside any fancy cocktail on the menu.
Place the ginger beer and the Collins glass in the freezer to get them as cold as possible while you mix up the mocktail.
Combine tea, cream, lime juice, simple syrup, egg white and bitters in a mixing tin.
Add ice and shake for as long as you can – 2 to 4 minutes is best.
Strain into a Collins glass with half the ginger beer.
Place in the freezer for about 2-3 minutes to set the foamy top.
Remove from freezer, use a straw to poke a hole in the top of the foamy head, add the ginger beer through the hole and watch the head rise over the rim of the glass.
Note: if you have a latte whisk, you can shake for a minute, strain into a mixing tin and use the latte whisk on the mocktail for about 30 seconds until the top is creamy and foamy. Then proceed to the freezer as above.** Blueberry Cinnamon Simple Syrup
