Brandy Flip

Brandy Flip cocktail with brandy, a whole egg, simple syrup, and nutmeg

A flip is a type of cocktail made from a whole egg – yolks and whites. The Brandy Flip is almost certainly one of the oldest flips, harkening back at least as far as the American colonial period.

Flips have a lot in common with egg nogs; the main difference is that nogs (usually) have cream and flips don’t. The Brandy Flip has a pleasing noggy character, without the thick texture normally associated with that holiday treat.

We often treat nutmeg as an optional garnish, but it’s a necessary ingredient that brings that must-have holiday spice flavor.

Ingredients

Instructions

Break the egg in your shaker and stir it up a little to help break up the yolk. Add the other ingredients (except the nutmeg), and ice, and shake violently for a long time to ensure that the egg is fully emulsified.

Double-strain through a fine mesh strainer into a chilled cocktail glass or coupe, and garnish with the nutmeg.

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app puts this drink – and hundreds more – in your pocket, and tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have at home. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on a drink.

Terrific Design!

Absolutely love this app. Gives a great visual representation of the ingredients and the user interface is well designed. Been using it to learn how to make cocktails, the descriptions are great about the drinks. As a novice barman, I love that I am learning the origin of the drink and alternative ways to make the drink. Be prepared to have a wide range of alcohol at you disposal! I can make heaps of drinks with the decent home collection I have, but seeing all the recipes what I could make gets me excited! Highly recommended, everyone loves the person who makes excellent drinks!
