Cocktail recipe: The Apple Turnover Flip Add to ...

They've been getting a lot of snow on the West Coast lately, but that's not bothering the patrons of Clive's Classic Lounge in the Chateau Victoria Hotel and Suites in Victoria. While a chill wind blows off the North Pacific, they find comfort in the house flip - a centuries-old drink resembling eggnog in its creamy consistency and frothy looks - prepared by executive mixologist Shawn Soole.

A transplanted Aussie who last year made Western Living's Top Foodie 40 Under 40 list, Soole adds a contemporary twist to his flip with a mixture of Apfelkorn, Frangelico, lemon juice and Irish whiskey, calling it an apple-pie drink with backbone. Making it is also easy as pie: Place all ingredients in a shaker and dry shake (i.e., without ice), then add ice, hard shake and double strain into a glass. The recipe can also be batch-made in a punch bowl, using a electric whisk to blend. It's great for that holiday party or any other occasion where the temperature needs raising.

Recipe:

1 ounce Irish whiskey

1/2 ounce Frangelico

1/2 ounce Appelkorn

1/2 ounce sugar syrup

1/2 ounce lemon juice

1 whole egg
