Foxton 42 Fizz

So I'm entering the 42 below contest and wanted to put up my recipe. I did some research and found the Foxton Fizz Company and thought this was a great use of the Kiwi Vodka and an homage to what appears to be a Jones Soda-esqe business. As odd as it sounds this drink tastes like bubblegum.

Foxton 42 Fizz
1.5 oz 42 Below Kiwi
.75 oz fresh lime juice
.75 oz raspberry syrup
1 egg white
soda (Foxton Fizz soda if you are in New Zealand)

to make raspberry syrup, mash 1 cup raspberries, 1 cup sugar, and 1 cup boiling water, then stir until dissolved. Cover and allow to cool for 1 hour. Strain.

Combine ingredients except soda and either dry shake or emulsify by other means, add ice and shake again. I prefer to use large ice; Either Kold-Draft of Tavolo 1.25 inch trays, and just shake vigorously with 4 cubes. Fill a collins glass half full with ice and strain the cocktail into the glass. This should leave the glass about 3/4 full. use your soda to rinse the container that held the mix and pour into the collins glass. this will give the drink a nice head that you can place a slice of kiwi and a raspberry upon.

I am also desperately seeking a bottle of this now......
