It's Shrove Tuesday, and up and down the land kitchens will be filled with outbursts of either triumph or disaster amateur cooks have a go at flipping their pancakes.
However successful your own creations, a Gin Flip cocktail makes the perfect accompaniment.
The classic Flip is made with booze (pretty much any kind, but we obviously prefer gin), egg and sugar, sometimes also with the addition of cream. The result is a smooth, foamy, luxurious concoction, perfect for a cold February evening.
We've tracked down some delicious variations on the Flip recipe so you can have a flippin' good time this Pancake Day, whatever your culinary skills! Cheers!
