Some prefer a classic cocktail, while others want something with a unique twist. But one particular drink that has always stood out to me is the Flip.
Now, you may be wondering, what exactly is a Flip? Well, without getting too technical, it's a category of mixed drinks that combine spirits, sugar, and eggs.

But not all Flip recipes are created equal. Some use heavy cream, others use whole milk, and some even add spices like nutmeg or cinnamon.
As a bartender, I've had the pleasure of experimenting with various Flip recipes and have come up with a list of the best ones that will satisfy any taste bud.
Whether you're a fan of bourbon, rum, or brandy, there's a Flip recipe out there for you.
So sit back, relax, and get ready to discover a whole new world of cocktail goodness.
