moreaa fizz

2 oz Gin (Beefeater)
1/2 oz Lemon Juice
1/2 oz Lime Juice
1/2 oz Passoa (Ezekiel's Passion Fruit Liqueur)
1/2 oz Simple Syrup
1/2 oz Half & Half (1 oz)
1 Egg White
1 dash Orange Blossom Water

Shake once without ice and once with ice, strain into a Highball glass with 2-3 oz soda water, and garnish with an edible orchid and pineapple leaves (omit).
While looking for the evening's drink two Sundays ago, my perusing of the BarNotes app uncovered an entry by Chad Austin of Bootlegger Tiki's take on a Ramos Gin Fizz. The Fizz was named the Moreaa Fizz after the Mo'orea Island in French Polynesia just northwest of Tahiti. Once prepared, the Moreaa Fizz gave forth a tropical-floral aroma from the passion fruit liqueur combining with the orange blossom water on the nose. Next, a creamy, carbonated citrus sip led into gin and tart passion fruit flavors on the swallow.
