The A-go Flip, conceived by Matt Poli of The Publican in Chicago, is a deep and complex riff on classic eggnog. With rum and rich PX sherry as a base, it has the creamy feel we all know and love, with flavors that will make even non-noggers take notice.

Note: to make demerara syrup, mix 1/4 cup demerara sugar into 1/4 cup hot water until fully dissolved.
