Whiskey Flip12:00 PM
The Whiskey Flip is a creamy, custardy drink that might just be the cocktail equivalent of a warm sweater on a brisk evening. With a sprinkle of nutmeg, it is reminiscent of eggnog, but not nearly as thick or cloying. It makes a great after-dinner cocktail.
Whiskey Flipserves 1
- 2 oz whiskey or bourbon
- 1 whole egg
- 2 teaspoons granulated sugar or superfine sugar*
- 2 teaspoons heavy cream
- nutmeg, for sprinkling on top
Put whiskey, egg, sugar, and cream into a shaker filled with ice. Shake it vigorously for a minute. Strain it into a coupe glass, a lowball, or whatever vessel makes you happy. Grate some nutmeg over the top and enjoy.
*Superfine sugar is basically granulated sugar that is ground until it becomes.. yeah, super fine. You can do this in your food processor if you like and then store some in your pantry for this type of occasion. (It dissolves faster which makes it useful for cocktails.) Or just use granulated sugar and give it a few extra shakes in the shaker that you are already vigorously shaking. Don't use powdered sugar which has a funky taste.
