Finishing off my bottle of Armada with a few flips
Cream Sherry Flip (from Darcy O'Neil at The Art of the Drink log)
2.5 Oz Cream Sherry (Sandeman Armada Rich Cream Oloroso)
2 tsp Cream
1 tsp Simple Syrup
Dry Shake, then shake with ice and strain. (I did a 'damp shake' with a single cube, as it always works better for me)
Rich and lovely, exactely what you would expect. A very nice way to enjoy sherry. Possibly the best way to enjoy sherry for breakfast.
Bourbon Derby Flip (from the Eastern Standard, via Cocktail
0.75 Oz Four Roses Bourbon (OGD 114)
0.75 Oz House Rum Blend (Applecton V/X)
0.75 Oz East India Solera Sherry (Sandeman Armada Rich Cream Oloroso)
0.5 Oz Cinnamon Syrup
0.5 Oz Cream
Dry Shake then shake with ice ands train into a cocktail glass. ( I added a nutmeg garnish, because why not?)
I love how the cinnamon spice cuts through the richness. The mix of base spirits is spot on here, the rum and bourbon perfectly balance eachother here. A really nice flip. This saturday is turning out great.
