Quick Facts

Cocktail History

The Bourbon Flip cocktail has been around for centuries and still retains its highly coveted spot among classic cocktails. Dating back to the 1700s, this bourbon-based tipple is made from bourbon whiskey, sugar, and a whole egg. Although an odd combination of ingredients, this drink was deemed the perfect digestif and enjoyed by all! Instead of being shaken or stirred like other renowned cocktails are, Bourbon Flip is flipped and aerated until an irresistible foamy head appears on top. With its creamy layers, unique texture, and subtle sweetness, it’s no wonder Bourbon Flip remains so popular today!


  • 2 oz Bourbon
  • 1 oz Simple Syrup
  • 1 Large Egg
  • 1 Pinch Nutmeg

Cocktail Preparation

In a cocktail shaker, filled with ice, add the bourbon, simple syrup, and egg. 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 and enjoy!
