From Classic Mixology, 1862:

Rum Flip

Winter, Holidays

(Another method.)

  • 1 quart ale
  • 3 to 4 egg
  • 4 ounce sugar moist
  • 1 fifth rum or brandy
  • nutmeg or ginger

Keep grated ginger and nutmeg with a little fine dried lemon peel, rubbed together in a mortar.

To make a quart of flip:—Put the ale on the fire to warm, and beat up three or four eggs with four ounces of moist sugar, a teaspoonful of grated nutmeg or ginger, and a gill of good old rum or brandy. When the ale is near to boil, put it into one pitcher, and the rum and eggs, &c., into another; turn it from one pitcher to another till it is as smooth as cream.
