How To Calm The Eff Down About A Blizzard

It's called the Nemo Flip Out — in honor of unreasonable snow mania — and it tastes delicious.

You will need two mugs, beer or sparkling cider, an egg, honey, and butter.

For cider, get something good. We used Eric Bordelet's Poire Authentique 2011 pear cider. For beer, use a brown ale or your favorite dark beer.


The Nemo Flip Out

Recipe by Eamon Rockey, managing partner at Brooklyn's Aska

Typically a flip is a drink with a whole egg in it. Here there's just an egg yolk, some sweetness, and a bunch of booze.


1/2 oz to 3/4 oz honey (use 1/2 oz for cider, 3/4 oz for beer)

1 egg yolk

1 tablespoon butter

1 oz scotch whiskey

5 oz hot cider or dark beer


Combine the honey, egg yolk, and butter in a mug. Stir vigorously. Add whiskey. Gradually add hot cider (but not too hot, or you'll cook the egg). Pour into an empty mug, then pour back into the first mug. Repeat about 10 times or until the drink is frothy.
