Ain't the internet great.
This is possibly the formula used, however more scholarly reasearch is in
order to make sure that some other variant might have been imbibed. I will
take this on as a "special project" as authenticity is always an operative
imperative. I am currently exploring what exactly what "bar sugar" is. 

The Original Ramos Gin Fizz


Invented in the 1880s by Henry C. Ramos, in his bar at Meyer's Restaurant,
this is one of New Orleans' most famous drinks. The secret of its flavor and
texture is orange flower water and egg whites. When Huey P. Long was
governor of Louisiana he brought with him to New York's Roosevelt Hotel the
bartender from the New Orleans Roosevelt just so he could have New Orleans
gin fizzes whenever he was in New York. Yeah, sure, every man a king ... 
Orange flower water can be difficult to find, but is available in better
liquor stores or Middle-Eastern markets. You can also obtain it from
Martin's Wine Cellar <http://www.martinwine.com/>  in New Orleans, (800)
298-4274, 3827 Baronne Street, New Orleans, Louisiana. 

*	2 ounces gin 

*	3 drops orange flower water 

*	1 egg whites 

*	1 teaspoon bar sugar 

*	1 ounce lemon juice 

*	1/2 ounce lime juice 

*	1 ounce cream 

*	Soda water 
Shake very vigorously for at least one minute. Strain into a tall thin
glass, or a very large old fashioned glass, and top with some soda water.

Count me in for LITR--I agree that 5 years ago it seemed dated, but now it's
fresher than ever.
