  • 2 ounces bourbon good quality
  • 1 ounce simple syrup
  • 1 large egg pasteurized if preferred
  • 1 pinch Nutmeg
  • 3 to 4 ice cubes


  • To a cocktail shaker add the bourbon, simple syrup, egg, and ice. Close and seal the shaker.
  • Shake vigorously for 2 minutes. This drink is all about getting the ingredients frothy and having lots of air mixed in. Shake it till you feel good and tired.
  • Strain the cocktail into a coupe or shallow champagne glass.
  • Top generously with freshly grated nutmeg. Serve immediately.


  1. To make simple syrup, combine equal parts water and sugar in a saucepan. Bring to a simmer and cook until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat and cool to room temperature before using.
  2. Yes, you're going to add a whole egg to this recipe. If you're worried about the egg, you can buy pasteurized eggs.
  3. The key to this drink is air. You want a lot of it getting mixed in with your cocktail.
  4. Only add 3-4 ice cubes to the shaker. Too much ice will clog things up and the magic won't happen.
  5. 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!
