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.

This app ROCKS!!!

I've used a number of mix drink apps, and this one is by FAR the BEST! I've made a couple dozen drinks so far, and they're delicious. It suits my quality wants while (more importantly) suiting my inherent laziness. You put in what you have on hand, and it automatically lists all the drinks you can make! There's info on all the ingredients, which is pretty neat to learn some backstory. What I truly like is I can click an ingredient and it shows how many more drinks I can make. It's pretty fun picking up a new item and seeing 8 new drinks to try. There's a setting on the iPad that locks the app on so people can switch on the mixing app without letting anyone out of it, so I leave it by the bar and people can use it without worry of people snooping around. ;) The combination of all the drinks and this app that makes searching for, and making a drink, easy peezy lemon squeezey, and gives a real feeling of sophistication.
