old york flip

1 oz Rittenhouse 100 Rye
1 oz Brown Crème de Cacao
1/3 oz Fernet Branca
1/4 oz Cream
Whole Egg

Shake once without ice and once with ice. Strain into a coupe glass and garnish with freshly grated nutmeg.

For a final drink at the Citizen, bartender Sean Frederick recommended the Old York Flip. The drink was created by Taylor Corrigan of Origin in Toronto who was sitting a few seats down to our left that night; Sean had met Taylor when they were both cocktail apprentices at Tales of the Cocktail in 2011. Old York is a reference to the name of a city that later became incorporated into Toronto in the 19th century.

The Old York Flip greeted the senses with a chocolate and nutmeg aroma. A creamy, malty sip gave way to a chocolaty swallow with a light menthol finish. Indeed, the combination of cacao, cream, and Fernet worked well here as it did in the Fernet Alexander I crafted during my tour of the Anvil's 100 Drink list.
