Hot Ale Flip for 8 Pence!

I have not personally tried Hot Ale Flip, however, my 5th great grandfather did! On January 13, 1803, Theodore Hillyer walked into [Viets Tavern in East Granby, Connecticut,] put 8 pence on the table and had a cup of flip on a cold winter’s day. The tavern owner, Luke Viets, dutifully recorded the transaction in his ledger. We know this because the original ledger and the tavern survive til this day!
