flip out

1 1/2 oz Carpano Sweet Vermouth (Cocchi)
3/4 oz El Dorado 12 Year Rum
~1/4 oz Marie Brizard Curaçao (Pierre Ferrand Dry)
2 dash Bittermens Mole Bitters
8 drop Salt Tincture (1 pinch Salt)
1 Whole Egg

Shake once without ice and once with ice, strain into a cocktail coupe, and garnish with orange oil from a twist.
Two Fridays ago, I decided to continue on with a second drink from Kirk Estopinal's trilogy in Beta Cocktails, the Halfway to a Three Ways to Lose Your Lover. Here, the Flip Out was the whole egg version with flipped around rum-vermouth proportions of the All's Fair. Once assembled, the Flip Out showcased the rum's caramel aroma along with orange notes from the twist oils and liqueur. The caramel and orange continued on into the sip, and they were followed by rum, chocolate, and cola flavors on the swallow.
