    Fernet Flip (Ira Koplowitz)

    1 1/2 ounces Fernet Branca
    1 1/2 ounces Carpano Antica Formula

    1 whole egg

    3/4 ounce Mezcal Vida

    Grapefruit twist garnish

    Peychaud's Sour (Ira Koplowitz)

    1 ounce Peychaud's Bitters
    1 ounce St. George Absinthe

    .5 ounce simple syrup
    1 egg white
    Lemon twist garnish

    Unnamed Flip (Troy Sidle)

    2 ounces Rittenhouse BIB
    3/4 ounce Angostura Bitters
    1/2 ounce Blis Bourbon Barrel Matured Maple syrup
    1/4 ounce Demerara syrup (again, you might want to omit this if you're looking for something more bitter)
    1 whole egg
    Fresh Nutmeg garnish

    Campari Martini (Maks Pazuniak)

    3 ounces Campari
