Averna Stout Flip

Averna 003

2 oz Averna
1 oz stout
2 dashes Angostura bitters
1 whole egg
nutmeg, for garnish

Shake all ingredients vigorously with ice and strain into a wine glass. Garnish with freshly grated nutmeg. For the beer, choose a stout with a smooth, rich mouthfeel. St. Peter’s Cream Stout is perfect here; Samuel Smith’s Oatmeal Stout and Young’s Double Chocolate Stout are also good.

Wit-ty Flip

drambuie

1 1/2 oz Drambuie
3/4 oz lemon juice
2 dashes orange bitters
2 dashes allspice dram
1 whole egg
4 oz witbier
nutmeg, for garnish

Pour the beer into a pilsner or wine glass. Shake all the other ingredients hard with ice. Fine strain back into the mixing glass and then pour into the beer. Garnish with freshly grated nutmeg. (Pouring the heavier flip mixture into the beer rather than the other way around ensures that it mixes thoroughly.)

PX Flip

px-flip

2 oz. Pedro Ximinez Sherry
1/2 oz. Angostura bitters
1 whole egg
nutmeg, for garnish

Shake hard with ice, strain into a chilled cocktail glass, and garnish with freshly grated nutmeg. For the sherry I suggest the Lustau San Emilio PX, which is balanced by more acidity than some other PX sherries.
