ISO Ramos Fizz

After spending a weekend in Reno, I have a new favorite drink---the Ramos fizz. For me, its the perfect blend of creamy, sweet, slightly citrusy gin-infused goodness. Any recommendations for where to get these beauties in the Bay Area? I live in Oakland, but will travel if need be.

    The Orbit Room on Market at Laguna has one on their menu. I haven't tried the Ramos Fizz, but every drink I've had there has been lovingly crafted and delicious.

      The Alembic in the Upper Haight serves Ramos Fizzes only on their daytime menu, which I believe is only offered until 5pm. IMHO, they do a good job, but I haven't been there in a while.

          If Fornaio in Burlingame makes a good one. Not sure of the other locations...

            I tried this for the first time a couple weeks ago at Mike's Cafe in Portola Valley. It's their "house drink". I believe there's are also branches in Palo Alto and Menlo Park. Honestly I thought it was a bit of an acquired taste.

              Although they're famous for their Irish Coffee, The Buena Vista [near Ghiralrdelli, cable car turntable, etc.] makes a fine fizz

                The Ramp in the Dogpatch serves Ramos Fizz (although it is one of the 2 times I've ever seen my husband refuse to finish a drink...)
