December 9, 2019

The recipes included here are our tried-and-true favorites for creating a perfect canvas to print your Ripples designs. But you can add foam (and then Ripples creations!) to almost any cocktail using one of the ingredients or tools below. Let’s get bubbly, shall we?

Add just one of these to any cocktail to create perfectly printable foam:

  • Fresh egg white (not egg replacer)
  • Chickpea water, aka: aquafaba (vegan option)
  • Foam agents (such as Ms. Better’s Bitters or Wonderfoam)
  • Whipping siphon  (such as Isi Whipper)

Preparing Foamy Cocktails for Printing

  • Add all ingredients to cocktail shaker (no ice)
  • Dry shake for 20 seconds
  • Now add ice and ice shake 
  • Shake vigorously for 40 seconds 
  • Pour into glass using fine strainer 
  • Fill glass to top and place on Ripple Maker

*If you’re using a larger glass, keep recipe proportions

Best Practices and Some Troubleshooting for Creating Print-Ready Cocktails

  • Bubbles should be tiny – think Don Ho!
  • Fill drinks to the top of the glass

No strain, no gain silky foam
