singer's flip

2 oz Pig's Nose Blended Scotch (Cutty Sark Prohibition)
1/2 oz Orgeat
1/4 oz Cinnamon Syrup
1 Whole Egg
1 pinch Salt

Shake once without ice and once with ice, strain into a cocktail coupe, and garnish with a pinch of flaky salt.
Two Thursdays ago, I selected The Bartender's Manifesto by Toby Maloney with Emma Janzen for the evening's libation. The Singer's Flip sounded like a solid nightcap option, and it was created by Violet Hour bartender Aneka Saxon in 2018. Indeed, the combination of Scotch, orgeat, and egg reminded me of the Tiger that called for Yellow Chartreuse instead of cinnamon syrup. Once prepared, the Singer's Flip donated an almond and Scotch aroma to the nose. Next, a creamy and nutty sip slid into Scotch, earthy, nutty, and cinnamon flavors on the swallow. Overall, the description of comforting, cake batter, and candy bar rang true.
