Spicy Tequila Fizz
Add a thin slice of jalapeño to the shaker before dry shaking. This will infuse the cocktail with a spicy kick. Perfect for those who like it hot!
Substitute tequila with mezcal for a smoky variant. The smokiness of mezcal will add depth to the cocktail, making it a sultrier choice.
Ruby Red Fizz
Use pink grapefruit juice in place of lime for a tart and slightly sweeter profile. The cocktail will have an alluring blush tone and a more rounded sweetness.
Can I use any type of Tequila for the Tequila Fizz cocktail?
While the recipe suggests using silver tequila, you can experiment with different types of tequila like reposado or añejo to bring a different flavor profile to your cocktail.
Can I prepare a Tequila Fizz without egg white?
Yes, the egg white in the Tequila Fizz contributes to the frothy texture but can be omitted if you are either allergic or prefer not to use it. But it may alter the texture of your cocktail.

Dry shaking the cocktail ingredients first without ice helps to emulsify the egg white, which creates a nice frothy foam on top of the cocktail.
