Witty Gin Fizz (Video)

Thanks to my awesome and ever-talented videographer, Chris Eldridge, some of my beer cocktail recipes have been turned into videos! My super cool co-host and partner in crime for this new and educational video series is Jerry James Stone — a social media rockstar, killer home chef and champion of sustainability (amongst many things).

This particular video is for the “Witty Gin Fizz” — a beer cocktail inspired by the classic gin fiz. In lieu of soda water, we chose to use a Belgian Wit style beer. The result is super tasty and oh-so-refreshing!

Witty Gin Fizz Recipe


  • 1.5 oz. Gin
  • .5 oz. fresh lemon juice
  • .5 oz. agave nectar
  • .25 oz. pasterized egg whites (optional)
  • 4 oz. Belgian Wit


Vigorously shake gin, lemon juice, syrup and egg whites with ice. Pour over cracked ice, top with the beer.
