A flip is a class of mixed drinks. According to the Oxford English Dictionary, the term was first used in 1695 to describe a mixture of beer, rum, and sugar, heated with a red-hot iron ("Thus we live at sea; eat biscuit, and drink flip").

The iron caused the drink to froth, and this frothing (or "flipping") engendered the name. Over time, the proportion of eggs and sugar increased, the beer was eliminated, and the drink ceased to be served hot.

The first bar guide to feature a flip (and to add eggs to
the list of ingredients) was Jerry Thomas's 1862 How to
Mix Drinks; or, The Bon-Vivant's Companion. In this work,
Thomas declares that, "The essential in flips of all sorts
is to produce the smoothness by repeated pouring back
and forward between two vessels and beating up the
eggs well in the first instance the sweetening and spices
according to taste."

With time, the distinction between egg nog (a spirit, egg,
cream, sugar, and spice) and a flip (a spirit, egg, sugar,
spice, but no cream) was gradually codified in America's
bar guides. In recent decades, bar guides have begun to
indicate the presence of cream in a flip as optional.

Drinks taste better if served in nice drinkware so be sure to show off your best to your guests.

Are you on a tight budget but you still want to invite friends over for drinks? Make sure you serve iced water to quinch the thirst along-side the cocktails.
