A Box Without Hinges Gin Flip

April 2, 2017

A flip is traditionally a drink containing an egg, spirit, spice, and sugar. The egg is intended to impart texture instead of flavor. It serves to make the drink super frothy and light. This flip uses gin as its base spirit and layers tiki flavors on top.
