Cocktail Colin says:

Mezcal Flip is a bold concoction that silkily combines mezcal's smoky undertones with the lightness of egg white and sweetness of agave syrup. The hint of Angostura bitters adds a complex layer, resulting in a sophisticated blend that intrigues the palate with its depth and unique texture.

FAQ's

INGREDIENT_SPECIFICS

What type of Mezcal is best for a Mezcal Flip?

For a Mezcal Flip, it's best to use a joven (young) or unaged mezcal for its clear, pure flavor that blends well with the richness of the egg white and the sweetness of the agave syrup, while still providing that distinctive smoky character mezcal is known for.

PREPARATION_TECHNIQUES

Why do you need to shake the Mezcal Flip cocktail, and what technique is best?

The Mezcal Flip needs to be shaken, primarily because it contains egg white. Shaking helps emulsify the egg white, creating a silky, smooth texture and a frothy top. A vigorous shake is best, first a 'dry shake' without ice to emulsify the egg, followed by a 'wet shake' with ice to chill the drink.

SERVING_SUGGESTIONS

What garnish works well with a Mezcal Flip?

A classic garnish for a Mezcal Flip is a few dashes of Angostura Bitters on the frothy top. Not only does this add a decorative touch, but the bitters' aromatic quality complements the smoky, sweet, and complex flavors of the cocktail. A light grate of nutmeg can also add depth.

DIETARY_CONSIDERATIONS

Is there a vegan option for the Mezcal Flip, and how does it affect the taste?

Yes, a vegan Mezcal Flip can be made by substituting the egg white with aquafaba (the liquid from a can of chickpeas), which also provides a similar texture and frothiness. The taste might be slightly different, as aquafaba is neutral, but it shouldn't significantly alter the cocktail's balance of flavors.

ALCOHOL_CONTENT_COMPARISON

How does the alcohol content of a Mezcal Flip compare to other cocktails?

With an alcohol content of 29.27%, the Mezcal Flip is moderately strong in comparison to other classic cocktails. For instance, it's stronger than a Margarita (typically around 26%) but less potent than a Dry Martini, which can go up to 32% alcohol content, depending on the recipe.
