A Flip is a simple yet highly modifiable combination of spirit, sugar, and a whole egg. This category of cocktail dates way back to the 1600’s when the recipe included beer and was served hot. Today the cocktail is most often served cold and is ideal as an after-dinner drink or nightcap. Make this drink your own by combing different sugar syrups with different spirits. Try brown sugar syrup with Jamaican rum or honey syrup with Scotch whisky.
