Chocolate Easter flip

Chocolate Easter flip

Shaken & Stirred's Chocolate Easter Flip is a play on a classic 'flip', featured in the 1862 'Bon-Vivant's Companion'. Created with delicious dark and intense chocolate liqueur and luxurious cognac, once shaken together with egg and cream the cocktail will have the froth that gives it the 'Flip' name. It's a fabulously extravagant cocktail, perfect as a warming indulgence to sip over Easter - like drinking chocolate Easter eggs!
