Porto Flip

For those that don’t know what a flip is… it is a class of mixed drinks. The term “flip” was first used in 1695 to describe a mixture of beer, rum, and sugar, heated with a red-hot iron. The iron caused the drink to froth, and this frothing (or “flipping”) engendered the name. Over time, the proportion of eggs and sugar increased, the beer was eliminated, and the drink ceased to be served hot.
Ingredients:
1/4 oz brandy
1 1/2 oz ruby port
3/4 oz cream
1/2 tsp powdered sugar
1 egg yolk
1 pinch nutmeg

Directions:

Shake well over ice cubes in a shaker, and strain into a cocktail glass. Sprinkle with nutmeg, and serve.
