French Toast Flip

Erick Castro, Polite Provisions | San Diego

Whereas the original Sherry Flip takes its character from nutty, rich oloroso sherry (at least in our version), so, too, does Erick Castro’s breakfast-ready French Toast Flip, which is also fortified with Scotch, applejack brandy and maple and allspice syrups.

  • 3/4 ounce Scotch
  • 3/4 ounce applejack
  • 1 ounce oloroso sherry
  • 1/2 ounce maple syrup
  • 1/4 ounce allspice syrup (see Editor's Note)
  • 1 whole egg
  • 2 dashes whiskey barrel aged bitters, preferably Fee Bros.

Garnish: freshly grated cinnamon

  1. Combine all ingredients into shaker and shake vigorously without ice.
  2. Fill shaker with ice and shake again until cold.
  3. Strain into a sour glass and garnish.
