Sherry Flip

Lately I've been Flipping things. Whiskey and rum and port are the most common Flips, drinks made with egg and nutmeg and sometimes a little cream. Flips are like eggnog, really like eggnog, but you can make them with any number of base spirits. They are serious throwbacks in the cocktail cookbook, back when raw egg and cream were a fun after dinner treat.

And you should treat these drinks as a dessert, our colonial forefathers did. They are delicious by high calorie drinks that help send you off to sleep, but don't really get you drunk.
  • 2 oz. fino sherry
  • 1/2 tsp. sugar (1/4 oz. simple syrup used)
  • 1 whole egg
  • 1/2 oz. half-and-half
  • grated nutmeg
Combine all ingredients in a shaker and shake like hell. Add ice and shake again to chill. Strain into a goblet or sour glass. Garnish with nutmeg.
