Averna Stout Flip

(recipe, Jacob Grier)

In flips, the egg is thoroughly shaken or whisked into the beverage, creating a rich, smooth, creamy texture. Made correctly, they’re absolutely delicious. Today, most flips are served cold, with the egg being worked into the drink with a hard shake. This flip works especially well with heavy-bodied beers like oatmeal or chocolate stout, but any rich, dark beer will do fine.


  1. 2 oz. Averna
  2. 1 oz. stout
  3. 2 dashes Angostura bitters
  4. 1 egg
  5. Freshly grated nutmeg, for garnish


  1. Add the Averna, the stout, and the bitters to a shaker or mixing glass. Stir in the egg to break up the yolk, then shake hard and long with ice. Strain into a wine glass, and garnish with freshly grated nutmeg.
