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.

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.

I love this app

Super practical, informative, easy to use, even inspiring for lovers of cocktails or just those curious to try a few recipes over time and keep an inventory of favorite recipes handy. Updated fairly judiciously, thankfully, so it isn’t cluttered up with unproven concoctions resulting in an overwhelmingly-sized library with too many ridiculous or middling cocktails. Attractive, welcoming, well-designed UI.
