For the first time the term was used in 1695 to describe a mixture of beer, rum and sugar which was heated with hot metal. The hot metal created within the beverage foam, in English “flipping”, from which it is named. Over time there were introduced eggs and sugar, and the beer is gone and the drink began to be served also cold.
