 A.k.a. the ambulance chaser. A.k.a. the ambulance chaser.

Drinking a Flip & Fall makes me feel like Rocky when he chugs whole eggs, except boozier.

This cocktail is deceptively tasty. You don’t have to use old tom gin, but I think it’s worth a shot if you can find it. Old tom gin—which sounds like a racial slur—is a tweener of sorts between Genever gin and modern London dry gin. It’s more whiskey-ish than regular gin. Imagine if Crown Royal had a British cousin… that’s what old tom gin would taste like.

Egg whites bring froth and levity to cocktails. Egg yolks, on the other hand, bring a rich and velvety texture. The whole egg puts them in the flip category of drinks, hence the name.


Ingredients


Recipe

Add ice to a cocktail glass. Fill with water. Set aside.

Crack the whole egg into a cocktail shaker and shake without ice to emulsify the egg.

Add the remaining ingredients to the cocktail shaker. Fill with ice. Shake until your hands freeze to the shaker, a good 30-45 seconds ought to do it.

Dump the water and ice from the cocktail glass. Double strain the shaker’s contents into the cocktail glass.

Garnish with a lime peel. (Note: When peeling a lime, it’s easier peeling from top to bottom, not around it.)


 Gin one for the flipper. [Not really sure that the reference works, but we’re going with it.] Gin one for the flipper. [Not really sure that the reference works, but we’re going with it.]
