Buttermilk Maple Gin Flip

Buttermilk Maple Gin Flip is a tasty, creamy drink for people who like cocktails and usually find themselves standing at the open fridge with leftover buttermilk. The cocktail’s taste is rich with a beautiful foamy rim that supports traditional nutmeg dusting.

Originally, the Gin Flip goes with heavy cream. In our case, by replacing it with buttermilk we lighten the cocktail and now can enjoy it without additional fat.

Maple syrup sweetness works perfectly well with a light touch of buttermilk acidity inside the drink. Together with gin, they create a truly nice flavor of a new version of this cocktail classic.
