Cafe Con Leche Flip


1 oz
A rum aged in charred oak barrels that lend their color to the rum. If a recipe calls for this rum it is likely refuring to a darker colored rum with a rich and strong yet smooth flavor. Common varieties come from Jamaica and Haiti.
1 oz
An alcoholic beverage flavored with brewed coffee and sugar. You can make your own, here is a recipe from Serious Eats: First, cold-brew 1/4 cup of fine ground coffee and 1.25 cups water for 12 hours in the fridge. Strain through a filer into a sealable glass jar. Make a simple syrup by combine 1 cup of sugar and 1 cup of water, bring to a boil to dissolve and let cool. Add the syrup to the mixture, with a vanilla bean and 1.5 cups light rum. Let the mix steep for 3 days, then remove the bean. Bottle your liqueur and enjoy!
0.75 oz
A syrup made from dissolving granulated sugar (sucrose) in water. Regular simple is made by combining 1:1 sugar:water by mass, rich simple is 2:1 sugar:water by mass although only 1.5 times as sweet as regular. We always use 1:1 syrup unless otherwise noted in the recipe itself.
0.75 oz
The butterfat layer skimmed from the top of milk before homogenization, contains more than 35% milk fat. Also called single/double cream and whipping cream, although these may also add thickening agents making them less useful for mixing in cocktails. This is used as a foaming agent and for fat-washing in cocktails.

You know what eggs are. In cocktails, eggs are used for their foaming properties, giving the drink a rich and creamy texture. The eggs proteins form a 'net' that traps air and liquid extremely well; for this reason, drinks that contain eggs are shaken. They are also used for egg washing, a type of booze washing. Some cocktails use only the egg white (fizzes) and some use the whole egg or only the yolk (flips). There are common non-egg substitutes out there, check out insta-foam

The seed from an evergreen tree, used as a grated garnish in many cocktails. A must for egg-nog and egg-nog like drinks. In sufficent amounts it gives a numbing sensation.

Combine the rum, coffee liqueur, simple syrup, cream, and egg yolk in a shaker and dry shake without ice to emulsify. Fill the shaker with ice and shake again until chilled. Strain into a chilled sour glass and garnish with grated nutmeg. #shake #straight
