This easy Bourbon Flip Cocktail is perfect for all your winter get togethers! Layered with inviting seasonal aromas, this winter cocktail recipe will make everyone a little toasty!
I don’t know about you, but during the chilly winter months, there’s nothing better than a delicious, winter cocktail to warm you up. Eggnog is the most well know of the winter cocktail recipes, but this Bourbon Flip is ready to give eggnog a run for its money! This is a classic drink from pre-prohibition times that’s lighter than eggnog and just as delicious! Because as much as I like eggnog, I can’t drink as much because it’s so thick and heavy.
Bourbon Flip Cocktail Recipe Tips
- Yes, you’re going to add a whole egg to this recipe. It’s okay. No one will die…unless you have an egg allergy. Then don’t make this. 🙂 If you’re worried about the egg, buy pasteurized eggs.
- The key to this drink is air. You want a lot of it getting mixed in with your cocktail. Only add 3-4 ice cubes to the shaker. Too much ice will clog things up and the magic won’t happen.
- Shake it ’til you drop! A Bourbon Flip needs to be shaken vigorously to really mix things up and create that froth. So shake, shake, and shake some more!!
Now that you’ve made one of my favorite whiskey cocktails, take a sip. You’ll get a nose full of nutmeg (YUM!) and a punch from the bourbon. This cocktail has a silky smooth and light mouthfeel you’ll love. While freshly grated nutmeg is always my preference, if you can’t find any, ground nutmeg will work fine. Just remember, this cocktail is shaken…not stirred.
