The Death Flip was created in 2010 by bartender Chris Hysted for the bar Black Pearl in Melbourne Australia. When the cocktail first appeared on the menu, no ingredients were listed and if you asked what was in the drink, the bartender wouldn't tell you. The only thing offering the customer a hint as to what they were getting into was the ominous description: “You don’t wanna meet this cocktail in a dark alley.”
