Cocktail Advent Calendar-Dec 22nd, the Porto Flip

How is the Porto Flip different from the Coffee cocktail?  Trust.  The Porto Flip for toady’s Cocktail Advent Calendar has a simple lesson; trust your friends.  A quick  look through the internet would show you that the Porto Flip is the same as the Coffee Cocktail, this is what I always learned.  But something I’ve noticed that happens quite often in translating drinks is that unknown and expensive ingredients are lost.  Cocktaildb.com provides this recipe for a Porto Flip and I think we’d all agree that is much better than the half assed way we were all likely taught.
