The Fatal Flying Guillotine is a tongue-in-cheek homage to the Flip, a standard eighteenth century mixed drink which later batenders miniaturized into single servings. Our carbonated version relies on a combination of port wine, grenadine, and Ramazzotti to provide bittersweet fruit notes, while the whiskey lends it oak, tannin, and structure. We create a foamy, frothy head by dosing it with liberal amounts of carbonated water, and the resulting drink is redolent of fizzy, fluffy, cherry cream soda.
