In Colonial times, Flips were made by tossing ingredients from one pitcher to another, back and forth, until the beverage was frothy. We prepare our Flips with a two-piece steel shaker, but the same science behind “flipping” a drink applies here as well.

Here the traditional cold creamy weight of the Flip is cut with our powerful peppercorn-infused sotol, and warms to the tastes of toasted almonds, charred oak, apples, and aromatic baking spices. This cocktail, also, refused to be pinned down on your palate, and is a fabulous introduction to one of Mexico’s lesser known spirits.
