An almost festive drink, Port Flip is made with egg yolk, sugar and port. Traditionally, a flip has nutmeg sprinkled over the top, but this may be omitted if preferred.
4 ice-cubes, crushed
1 egg yolk
1 teaspoon castor sugar
3 fl. oz. port a teaspoon grated nutmeg
Half-fill a cocktail shaker or large screw-top jar with the ice-cubes. Add the egg yolk, sugar and port and screw the lid on tightly. Shake the jar vigorously until the mixture is well blended.
Pour the mixture through a fine wire strainer held over a wine glass. Discard the ice-cubes. Sprinkle with the nutmeg and serve.
