So now... my recipe for the Christmas Flip!  According to Wikipedia and the Oxford English Dictionary, the term 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, eggs were added and the proportion of sugar increased, the beer was eliminated, and the drink ceased to be served hot.




The first bar guide to feature a flip (and to add eggs to the list of ingredients) was Jerry Thomas's 1862 How to Mix Drinks; or, The Bon-Vivant's Companion. 
With time, the distinction between eggnog (a spirit, egg, cream, sugar, and spice) and a flip (a spirit, egg, sugar, spice, but no cream) was gradually codified in America's bar guides. In recent decades, bar guides have begun to indicate the presence of cream in a flip as optional.
Anything good for Christmas takes a bit of time, and this drink is no exception. I start by making a cinnamon infused bourbon. I insert three cinnamon sticks into a flask of bourbon for three days.  Every few hours I will shake the mixture up.  To make the flip you will need 2 oz of the cinnamon-infused bourbon, 1 egg, 1 oz of simple syrup made with Dixie Crystals sugar, and freshly grated nutmeg. In a cocktail shaker, add 4-5 cubes of ice, the bourbon, the simple syrup, and egg and shake, shake, shake!  Shake some more!  Get into it and shake, rattle and roll.  Shake some more!  Strain the mixture into these gorgeous JoyJolt glasses. Aren't they special?  Love them.  Grate some nutmeg on top and serve!
