My Mother the Car and "The Porter Flip"
This week back in 1965, NBC aired a show which for decades was considered the worst in TV history. Learn about “My Mother the Car” - and how it spawned more careers than it did ratings points — then tune into this custom Motor City cocktail:
“The Porter Flip,” as engineered by Travis Fourmont at Roast in Detroit, MI:
- 1.5 oz “Corner Creek” bourbon
- 0.5 oz demerara sugar
- 1 whole egg
- 1.5 oz “Edmund Fitzgerald Porter” beer
Add all ingredients in a Boston Shaker, preferably one with a coil inside. (The coil whips the drink, creating a frothy meringue texture.) Shake with no ice - for 2 minutes, then add ice, shake again and strain it. Serve in a chilled 5 oz. cocktail glass. Swig it and wash away the terrible taste of “My Mother the Car.”
