Here's an interesting fall libation. The Manuka Flip has the great characteristics of the flip cocktail family with a little extra spice of the season. While flips are not as common as they once were, they are still great and the egg, which can put some people off, is essential to bind the ingredients and create a velvet feel to the drink. It's delicious and worth a try.
