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.

Gut mit Luft nach oben

Ich war auf der Suche nach einer Cocktail Datenbank mit der ich mir zuverlässig die Drinks anzeigen lassen kann, für die ich auch die Zutaten im Hause habe. Mit Cocktail Flow klappt das leider nicht verlässlich. Dieses Programm macht das vorbildlich und vor allem listet es die Cocktails auch danach auf, wo mir noch eine, zwei usw. Zutaten fehlt. So kann ich auch immer schauen was ich mir ggf. noch kaufen sollte. Die Auswahl an Getränken ist gut, jedoch mit wenig Sirup-haltigen. Hier würd ich mir mehr Rezepte wünschen wo man die div. Fruchtsirupe einsetzen kann. Auch gibt es leider keine Möglichkeit Cocktails als Favoriten zu kennzeichnen oder das Rezept zu exportieren. Da das Programm nur in Englisch ist muss man in der Zutatenliste manchmal googlen was damit gemeint ist. Mit ein paar Rezepten mehr, Favoritenfunktion und Lokalisierung gibt es fünf Sterne.
Translation: I was looking for a cocktail database with which I can reliably display the drinks for which I also have the ingredients in the house. Unfortunately, this does not work reliably with cocktail flow. This program does the exemplary and above all it lists the cocktails also after, where I still missing one, two etc. ingredients. So I can always look what I should possibly buy. The selection of drinks is good, but with little syrup-containing. Here I would want more recipes where you can use the div. Fruit syrups. Unfortunately, there is no way to mark cocktails as favorites or to export the recipe. Since the program is only in English you have to googling in the list of ingredients sometimes what is meant by that. With a few more recipes, favorites and localization, there are five stars.
