"Dusk Flip" #4 in drink series. MB Challenge July 2013

Challenge topic was mine this month. I chose "Egg". Since I'm having so much fun with these obscure cocktail recipes...why not?

I learn so much! Did you know a "Flip" is a cocktail with a whole egg, while a "Fizz" uses only an egg white? Both were more common in days of ore...some even made by inserting a hot fireplace poker into the drink just before serving.

Diane did an amazing pencil drawing of some eggs, while Suzanne blew me away with her huge painting. Great work, team!

The recipe:

  1. 1 large egg
  2. Small pinch of freshly grated nutmeg, for garnish
  3. Ice
  4. 1/2 ounce heavy cream
  5. 2 ounces Irish whiskey
  6. 1/2 ounce Simple Syrup
  7. 3 blackberries, plus 1 blackberry skewered on a pick for garnish
"Dusk Flip"
12" x 16" pastel and gold leaf
