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.
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.
