Flip, flip, flip-a-delphia
I know I’ve mentioned Santa Maria al Monte Amaro before but have been slightly overwhelmed with all this Holidaze/Xmas business and You’re So Kind posts lately…AHEM. Ok, seriously though, Santa Maria is my fave Amaro. It’s sort of like if you smashed Fernet Branca and Averna together but then lightened them up at the same time. Brighter, lighter, smooth, perfect as a digestivo. I drink Santa Maria neat in a tiny 1 oz cordial glass nearly every day.

Some instagram friends of mine mentioned a Flip contest and I was totally inspired. I love Flips, Silver Fizzes and anything with a Whole Egg. The most popular Flip amongst the HipStars is probably the Cynar Flip (excellent cocktail, such flavour).
Flips means you get to drink an egg in a cocktail. Which in turn means you can have vitamins and calories whilst consuming alcohol. DO YOU GET WHAT I’M SAYING? It means you can drink and not pass out! But don’t get crazy now, everything in moderation, especially Egg drinks!
This drink is named after my friend Rebecca Wolskir, a bad ass French teacher and Cyclo-Cross Maniac who also loves Santa Maria al Monte Amaro as much as I do!
