The Story of the Death Flip

For what it’s worth, and for whomever is interested.

Seems perfectly worthwhile. I haven’t had this one, yet, myself. I don’t generally have Jaegermeister on hand. Despite gaz’ best efforts, the stuff acquired a bit of a pall during the Renaissance and I’ve avoided it. So many other amari and amaro-esque products to choose from. I’ll look for a mini to experiment with.

Also, this is a nice opportunity for a contrast with my favorite contemporary flip, Jim Meehan’s Black Flip:

2 oz Brooklyn Brewery Black Chocolate Stout (swirl in shaker to decarbonate)
1.5 oz of Cruzan Blackstrap
0.5 oz demerara syrup
1 egg

Dry shake, shake with ice, strain into sour glass; ground nutmeg.

Unlike the Death Flip, the Black Flip is not—and probably cannot ever become—a Modern Classic, because it is built around a particular seasonal stout with limited distribution. It can travel to a limited extent (I make them at home this time of year), but not easily. You can try to sub a different stout, but YMMV.
