Drink Essentials: Awesome Gin Flip

Andy Anderson !


I was skeptical of the recipe… That is until I tried one. Most Gin Flips are made with cream, and/or soda water, this one is made with buttermilk, and I think that makes all the difference in the world.

It has almost an eggnog flavor to it, and it tastes so smooth, but remember, it has 2 ounces of gin in it...

This is one of the concoctions I will be serving on New Year’s Eve.

So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.
