Brandy Flip

Adapted from The Essential Cocktail: The Art of Mixing Perfect Drinks by Dale DeGroff

The spiritous companion to the classic Sherry Flip is a classic combination of whole egg, brandy and sugar, shaken to a frothy head and garnished with fresh nutmeg.


Serving: 1

  • 1 1/2 ounces brandy
  • 1 whole egg (see Editor's Note)
  • 1 ounce simple syrup (1:1, sugar:water)

Garnish: freshly grated nutmeg

  1. Combine ingredients in shaking tin and shake long and hard to emulsify the egg.
  2. Strain into a London dock glass and dust with freshly grated nutmeg.
