How to make:
SHAKE all ingredients with the ice and fine strain into chilled glass.
Dust with grated nutmeg
I favour creamy, spicy, bourbon based Flips.
Served hot in a toddy glass - heat in a microwave oven or mix in a pan over heat.
Flips basically consist of any fortified wine or liquor shaken with a whole egg and sweetened with sugar. They can also contain cream and are typically garnished with a dusting of nutmeg and served in a sour glass or small Martini glass. They can be served hot or cold.
The very first Flips, which emerged as early as the late 1600s, consisted of a tankard of ale to which a mixture made from sugar, eggs and spices was added before being heated with a red-hot iron poker from the fire. Later they came to mean any fortified wine or liquor shaken with a whole egg and sweetened with sugar.
