I’m super excited to share this amazing cocktail with you called the Cinnamon Citrus Flip. It’s a unique blend that combines some truly interesting flavors, and it’s great for when you’re in the mood for something a bit unexpected. The overall flavor profile of the Cinnamon Citrus Flip is a beautiful balance of sweet, spicy, and bitter, with a creamy, indulgent mouthfeel. This cocktail is a delicious amalgamation of ingredients, each bringing its own unique character to the glass.
This isn’t your everyday cocktail, and some of the ingredients may surprise you, but trust me you’re going to love it!
So, what’s in this cocktail? First, there’s spiced rum. This is the base spirit and it’s packed with flavors like vanilla, cinnamon, and nutmeg. It’s warm and a bit sweet, which makes it a great foundation for the cocktail. The spiciness of the rum pairs well with the other ingredients, giving it a nice kick.
Next up is amaro. Amaro is an Italian herbal liqueur, and it’s known for its bitter-sweet flavor profile. It’s made from a blend of herbs, roots, and citrus peels, which adds complexity to the drink. The bitterness of the amaro balances out the sweetness of the spiced rum and the cinnamon syrup. Speaking of cinnamon syrup, this adds a lovely sweet and spicy note to the cocktail. It’s basically simple syrup infused with cinnamon. Not only does this simple syrup enhance the existing spiced within the mix, it works as an ideal sweetener and smooths things out.
Then we have orange bitters, a classic cocktail ingredient that is such a minor addition in the grand scheme of things, yet makes all the difference! Just a few drops add a citrusy, slightly bitter edge to the drink, brightening up some of the heavier flavors of the spirits.
The final, and most interesting ingredient is a whole egg. Now, this is what makes a cocktail a ‘Flip’. Traditionally, a ‘Flip’ is any cocktail that contains a whole egg, which is then shaken vigorously to emulsify it into the drink. This gives the cocktail a rich, creamy texture and a smooth, frothy top. It’s really a unique experience. And yes, it is safe to drink!
After shaking these ingredients together, serve it in a nice coupe glass and top it off with a cinnamon stick for garnish.
Step1: Add all of the ingredients into a shaker with ice and shake vigorously until mixture is foamy (about 30 seconds).
Step 2: Strain the ice out of the mixture, give it a dry-shake.
Step 3: Strain into a coupe glass and garnish with a cinnamon stick.
So, whether you’re a seasoned cocktail enthusiast or just looking to try something new and exciting, the Cinnamon Citrus Flip is a drink that demands attention. It’s a testament to the art of mixology, where each ingredient plays a vital role, and the result is something truly special!
