Think of this as a very grown-up play on cookies and milk, with a tropical twist. It takes inspiration from the original rum flip. Everett explains that it’s “a kind of precursor to eggnog, which was often made with a dark ale, rum, sugar, (sometimes) Sherry and a whole egg, all heated by a red-hot poker and served in some of America’s first taverns.” This version is served cold and tastes like gingerbread or a holiday applesauce cake, Everett says.

How To Make a Festivus for the Rest of Us

Ingredients
1 ounce cream Sherry, such as Harvey’s Bristol Cream
1 ounce Appleton Signature blend rum
1 ounce falernum syrup (such as Fee Brothers)
1 whole egg
1 ounce Maui Brewing Hiwa Porter (or similar porter)
Gingerbread cookie, for garnish

Directions

Combine first four ingredients without ice and dry-shake until foamy.

Add ice and shake briefly with ice until cold.

Strain into a Collins glass over fresh ice (Everett uses pebble ice).

Top up with 1 ounce porter.

Garnish with a gingerbread cookie.
