James Wampler's twist on the Ramos Gin Fizz has a Scotch rinse, a frothy egg white head and a healthy dose of the herbal liqueur Bénédictine. He mixes the drink with a New Western gin, a style with more "botanical democracy" than juniper-heavy London dry. The No. 209 here is a small-batch gin that's peppery, citrusy and ultra-smooth.

3/4 teaspoon Islay Scotch
2 ounces New Western gin, such as No. 209, or another dry gin
Rinse a chilled collins glass with the Scotch; do not pour out the excess. In a cocktail shaker, combine the gin, Bénédictine, cream, Simple Syrup, citrus juices and egg white and shake vigorously; fill with ice and shake again. Pour into the collins glass and top with the soda.
