Rum Flip

Rum Flip cocktail with aged rum, egg, demerara syrup, and nutmeg

The Rum Flip is an antique recipe, dating from the days when taverns would serve rum and beer thickened with egg. It’s a minimalist take on an egg nog, with richly woody, spicy flavors set against the smooth sweetness of a fluffy egg.

A demerara or brown sugar syrup is the standard here here, but a vanilla or cinnamon syrup would be a welcome change of pace.

Ingredients

Instructions

Shake all ingredients (except the nutmeg) first without ice, and then again with ice added. Double-strain through a fine mesh strainer into a small, chilled coupe or sour glass. Garnish with the nutmeg.

Really Good App

We downloaded the app after seeing it as one of the top posts on /r/cocktails, and we've been playing around with it and adding our ingredients to the list. While it's not an all inclusive list of ingredients (missing some creme de ), it's a solid overall app and tosses out some truly spectacular recipes based on what you have in your liquor cabinet. Minor quibbles for an otherwise fantastic application!
