This one is from the Difford's Guide list of the 30 best drinks since 2000. It contains tequila, Yellow Chartreuse, Jagermeister and a whole egg. It looks kind of crazy, but it's delicious. I don't use Jager that much and I probably should experiment with it more often. For now however, I'm content to stock it even if I only use it for this drink.

The nose sets things up, displaying a rich weightiness even before the sip. The nutmeg from the garnish is present as well and foreshadows an abundance of more rich flavors. There also seemed to be a slight citrus aroma up front. The sip has a creamy, almost custard-like quality, which along with the nutmeg, triggers thoughts of egg nog. Once the Yellow Chartreuse and Jagermeister show up though it becomes a decidedly more herbal affair. Those two however, aren't overbearing - their quantity and the weight of the drink sees to that. But they do spin this thing in a beguiling and wonderful direction. Two adjectives I did not imagine myself using in a drink with Jagermeister. Here, that tandem is soft, slightly medicinal, rich and warming. The Chartreuse contributes a slight lift, keeping things from getting too settled. Tequila, arms folded and smiling, appears at the end and lingers well into the finish with a look that says 'Glad you guys are having fun.'

 

 

Death Flip - Chris Hysted, Black Pearl, Melbourne, Australia 
1 oz Don Julio Blanco
1/2 oz Yellow Chartreuse
1/2 oz Jagermeister
1/2 oz Simple (I use 1:1) 
1 Whole Egg
Garnish - Grated Nutmeg

Dry shake, then with ice, strain into a wine glass (or an old water glass if that's what you use for wine), garnish.

 

Looks like there are a couple of different specs for the Death Flip. Both with the same attribution. The above recipe comes from an Australian site and is the version I've gotten used to. Difford's says an ounce each for the first three and 1/4 oz of simple (2:1 specified). Both versions are great. The Difford's one results in a more consolidated drink - richer, heavier, darker. The recipe above is a bit lighter comparatively, and gives the Chartreuse and tequila a little more room.
