It might seem strange to use a full measure of Angostura bitters in a cocktail, but we assure you that it works wonders as the main ingredient in this custardy Flip. A touch of peppery rye whiskey and a floral honey syrup make this wintery dessert cocktail rich, subtly bitter and intoxicatingly robust—almost like a chai tea latte, but with a much stronger kick.
