Egg and Rum Flip

Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum. If there is one thing you don’t want to mess with, it is a pirate’s rum ration. Fresh water was in short supply and rum was the beverage of choice on board most ships. The Rum Flip in Blackbeard’s day was a combination of beer, rum and sugar served in  tin can. This updated cocktail version is probably more palatable to modern seaman and land lubbers alike.

1 egg
1 tsp sugar
1 oz rum
1/4 pt milk

Separate the egg. Cream yolk thoroughly with sugar. Add rum and milk. Whip egg white stiffly and fold in. Serve chilled.
