jack sparrow flip

2 oz Flor de Caña 7 Year Rum (Plantation Original Dark)
3/4 oz Sandeman Rainwater Madeira (Blandy's 5 Year Verdelho)
3/4 oz Demerara Syrup
2 dash Fee's Whiskey Barrel Bitters
1 Whole Egg

Shake once without ice and once with ice, strain into a Fizz glass (nut bowl), and garnish with grated cinnamon.

Two Thursdays ago, I grabbed the Death & Co. Cocktail Book and found Brian Miller's Jack Sparrow Flip that seemed like a great nightcap to end the workday evening. The combination of rum, Madeira, demerara syrup, and bitters reminded me of the last drink that Ryan McGrale made for me, a Rum & Madeira Old Fashioned, and this 2008 creation added a whole egg to the combinaton.
The freshly grated cinnamon added a bright spice aroma to the Flip. Next, a creamy caramel and grape sip transitioned into dark rum and chocolate notes on the swallow with a cinnamon finish.
