Blowtorches & Beer: Jacob Grier Shows Us How to Make a Flip
Like many cocktail enthusiasts, Jacob Grier, bartender and author, is interested in researching and using old-school techniques when building drinks. In this video, Grier resurfaces a colonial-era technique and gives it a modern twist. In America's colonial days, flips were made by heating a poker in a fireplace and putting them into the beer, rum and sugar mixture. As most bars are now without fireplaces, Grier uses a blowtorch instead to heat the loggerhead, caramelizing the sugar and quickly boiling the beer and rum into a warm, frothy and luscious cocktail.
