Coffee Flip Cocktail
This one packs a punch in more ways than one. It has both cognac and brandy, but doesn’t actually contain coffee. Some think it’s named because it looks like coffee when it’s shaken and poured into a glass. We know for sure that this drink has been around since the 1950s, and some sources say it’s been around since the 1800s. It’s similar to a Brandy Flip, but uses whole eggs instead of just egg whites. Because of the whole eggs, you may want to avoid serving this to anyone elderly or with a compromised immune system. If you want to add a coffee taste, we recommend coffee liquor. Does it work with a splash of real coffee?
1 teaspoon of confectioner’s sugar – many recipes call for simple syrup or demerara syrup
1 oz Brandy
1 oz Port
2 teaspoons of cream or oat creamer, optional
Add all ingredients to a cocktail shaker. Shake with some crushed ice and strain into glass. Grate a little nutmeg on top. Bottoms up. Do not drive!
