After the St. Germain Industry Night, we took the Red Line to Central Square to visit Craigie on Main. I picked the Jerez Flip off of the menu for the concept of a sherry egg drink seemed rather tasty. The drink bartender Tom Schlesinger-Guidelli crafted for me had a decent amount of nuttiness but not overly so, and was in the moderate level of sweetness with the dry sherry being balanced with the brown sugar syrup and Benedictine liqueur. Overall, the Jerez Flip was rather rich and had a good deal of spice with the flavors from the Benedictine and nutmeg complementing each other rather well. Moreover, the Pimm's added to the complexity of grape notes from the Sherry. Despite it being a chilled drink, the Jerez Flip was the perfect flavor combination for a cold winter's night.
