Hazardous ingredients

Egg yolk is potentially hazardous to those with allergy or intolerance.

Review:

Indulgent creamy mouthfeel but not too sweet, with a great balance between the port and the calvados.

History:

Adapted from a recipe created in 2007 by Chris Jepson at Milk and Honey in London, England. Chris' original recipe also contained 3/4 shot of cream. However, strictly speaking, flips contain egg but not cream.

Alcohol content:

  • 1 standard drinks
  • 19.35% alc./vol. (38.7° proof)
  • 14.5 grams of pure alcohol
