Also known as a Ramos Fizz, the New Orleans Fizz was created in the late 1800's by Henry C. Ramos in New Orleans. The cocktail became so popular that by the 1915 Mardi Gras celebration Ramos' 35 "shaker boys" could not keep up with demand.

This classic cocktail is one to add to your​ list of drinks to know, but remember to shake it really well to ensure the egg is completely mixed. In fact, your best fizz comes from shaking until it hurts. If a straw can stand up straight in your New Orleans, then you have shaken it properly.
