The Cocktail Sessions: The Flip, March 30th

The Cocktail Sessions: The Flip

March 30, 2019


We can trace The Flip’s origins back to the late seventeenth-century England where beer, rum, and sugar were mixed and heated with a red-hot iron poker. The hot iron caused the liquid to froth or “flip” and the name has stuck ever since. Today, Flips can be served hot (without a red-hot poker!) or cold and most recipes have dropped the beer and added egg or another rich ingredient.


The Flip, or any variations, must meet these core criteria:


Join us on Saturday March 30th at 3:00pm at Ace Gillett’s Lounge for a 1 hour class celebrating and discussing the history, ingredients, techniques, and variations of this delightfully comforting family of cocktails. We will taste a classic Flip recipe along with several variant recipes.


This class is the first in a series of seven cocktail classes featuring the six “Root” cocktails at Ace Gillett’s Lounge. Check our website for more information on the other classes and their schedule.
