Porto Flip Recipe


Cocktail Glass

Glass Guide- Cocktail Glass

The Porto Flip is a common "flip" drink with a brandy and ruby, or red, port base. Flips were once very popular, but lost some of their appeal in the late 19th Century.

When shaking this cocktail (or any with egg for that matter) you'll want to put some extra effort into the task to ensure everything is properly mixed. Some recipes call for 3/4 oz cream and 1/2 tsp powdered sugar to be added. This will make the Porto Flip even creamier and is a matter of personal choice.
