But there isn't much information out there about this particular category of drinks, so my conclusion has always been that the flip never was one of the more popular styles. I've recently created a twist on the Cuba Libre called the Liberty Flip and it is a real crowd pleaser. It contains light rum, swedish punsch, coca-cola reduction, a dash of lime juice, simple syrup, an egg and grated nutmeg.
Since I put that on my menu I've been trying to research the origins of the flip, but so far I haven't uncovered much. Does anyone have more information or recipes?

2 oz Amaro, Meletti
3/4 oz Lemon juice
1/2 oz Rich simple syrup 2:1
1 Whole egg
Dry shake, shake with ice, strain, straight up, lowball.
Fabulous. Great flip for the non-flip lover. Surprisingly not bitter. I get a gestalt of chocolate from Meletti, but others don't.

It's just ~ 2.5 oz Cynar and a whole egg (obviously, should probably grate some fresh nutmeg on top). It tastes surprisingly good, and different from what you'd expect.
My only suggestion, just in case you don't already know - as with many egg drinks, dry shake with a hawthorne strainer spring for a while before shaking with ice.
