Apricot Flip

Apricot Flip cocktail with cognac, apricot liqueur, simple syrup, and a whole egg

The Apricot Flip from The PDT Cocktail Book is a creamy, sweet dessert cocktail with a subtle apricot flavor – almost too subtle, in fact. PDT’s original recipe had the apricot liqueur at ¾ ounces (45 mL), but we found that it got a little lost against the richness of the drink. We’ve bumped it up just a bit, but feel free to use the original measurement if you have a more assertive apricot liqueur than we did.

Like all drinks with egg, you should shake the drink very well to ensure that the egg is fully emulsified, and you’ll probably want to double-strain it to make you sure no eggy solids get into the drink.

Instructions

Dry-shake all ingredients first without ice, then again with ice added. Double-strain through a fine mesh strainer into a chilled cocktail or coupe glass. Garnish with a dusting of freshly-grated nutmeg.

An awesome cocktail app with curated recipes

I'm shocked that there are no reviews listed for this app. I found it on reddit's cocktails forum. The drink list in this app is much shorter than in many of the other apps I've seen, but the quality and reliability of the recipes is much much higher. These are more like the drinks you would get at a good mixology bar instead of the drink equivalent of your aunt's jello fruit mold that people just "love." I much prefer a list of cocktails that are reliable, good and repeatable than a huge pile of garbage recipes. This app is great and delivers great, reliable cocktails.
