Pit Stop Flip
A fruit brandy made from the distillation of apple cider, these differ from the colorless eau de vie brandy in that apple brandies are usually aged in wood or colored in some way.
A fortified wine made in the Madeira Islands off the Portugese coast. It is produced in a variety of styles from dry aperitif to sweet dessert wines.
A syrup usually made from the xylem sap of sugar maple, red maple, or black maple trees; 67% sugar by mass. Super duper infamous in Canada. Most cocktails that use maple syrup specifically say to get 'A' grade, the downside is $$$$.
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 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.
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.
Not the tech giant! A fruit in the rose family most widely known for its juice; allowing it to ferment makes cider, yum!
Dry shake all the ingredients, then shake again with ice. Double strain into a coupe. Garnish with a few grates of nutmeg and rest an apple slice on the edge of the coupe. #shake #straight
By nature, flips are rich and decadent. This drink is as well, but the madeira is light and stretches out the flavors to create a more delicate flip. -Alex Day
