Merry Christmas Darling

“I love flips, but wanted to keep it light, fresh, and seasonal. I love how the bitters and cayenne and nutmeg bring out the fruit notes in the whiskeys and brandy, and the egg and cream provide the texture.”

.5 oz (15 ml) Jameson Black Barrel Irish Whiskey

1 oz (30 ml) apple cider
