This one is an acquired taste, but if you’re feeling adventurous you can try whipping up a Porto Flip.

It’s another drink that calls for egg, like those in the “sour” family. Unlike a Pisco Sour or Clover Club, however, it uses the yolk of the egg rather than the white. The only other popular cocktail to do so is the Tom & Jerry, an American alternative to Christmas Egg Nog. The result is a creamy texture and thicker consistency than you’re used to finding in a cocktail.

The Porto Flip is a very old drink, dating from the mid 19th century. It is listed as an International Bartenders Association “Unforgettable”, which speaks to its past popularity as an after-dinner beverage. If you like a sweeter drink, variations add cream and powdered sugar to the mix, and some also call for using the whole egg. We suggest you start with classic recipe, and adjust once you’ve tasted it the way the drink was originally crafted.

Here’s the recipe for making a Porto Flip cocktail:


  • 7.5ml Brandy
  • 45ml Red Port Wine
  • 1 Egg Yolk
  • Pinch of nutmeg to garnish


  1. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice
  2. Add all ingredients
  3. Shake vigorously, and take the time to ensure that all the ingredients are well blended (as you would with any drink containing egg)
  4. Strain into a well chilled cocktail glass
  5. Garnish by sprinkling a pinch of nutmeg over the froth


  • Cocktail shaker
  • Ice
  • Chilled cocktail glass
