Apricot Lady

Apricot Lady cocktail with light rum, apricot liqueur, lime juice, orange curaçao, and egg white

The Apricot Lady is a tiny, lovely cocktail that seems almost too dainty and delicate for this modern world.

We learned about the Apricot Lady from Robert Hess’ The Cocktail Spirit channel over at the Small Screen Network. Hess is equal parts mixologist, historian, and professor, and it’s in the video for this drink that we learned the technique for dry-shaking an egg-white drink.

A dry shake is a shake done without ice. Shaking without ice allows the egg white to capture bubbles of air and gain volume, much like what beating does for the eggs in a merengue. After shaking, add ice to the shaker and shake again until chilled.

Like all drinks containing egg, this one should be strained through a fine mesh strainer to remove any little eggy bits from the final drink.

Gut mit Luft nach oben

Ich war auf der Suche nach einer Cocktail Datenbank mit der ich mir zuverlässig die Drinks anzeigen lassen kann, für die ich auch die Zutaten im Hause habe. Mit Cocktail Flow klappt das leider nicht verlässlich. Dieses Programm macht das vorbildlich und vor allem listet es die Cocktails auch danach auf, wo mir noch eine, zwei usw. Zutaten fehlt. So kann ich auch immer schauen was ich mir ggf. noch kaufen sollte. Die Auswahl an Getränken ist gut, jedoch mit wenig Sirup-haltigen. Hier würd ich mir mehr Rezepte wünschen wo man die div. Fruchtsirupe einsetzen kann. Auch gibt es leider keine Möglichkeit Cocktails als Favoriten zu kennzeichnen oder das Rezept zu exportieren. Da das Programm nur in Englisch ist muss man in der Zutatenliste manchmal googlen was damit gemeint ist. Mit ein paar Rezepten mehr, Favoritenfunktion und Lokalisierung gibt es fünf Sterne.
Translation: I was looking for a cocktail database with which I can reliably display the drinks for which I also have the ingredients in the house. Unfortunately, this does not work reliably with cocktail flow. This program does the exemplary and above all it lists the cocktails also after, where I still missing one, two etc. ingredients. So I can always look what I should possibly buy. The selection of drinks is good, but with little syrup-containing. Here I would want more recipes where you can use the div. Fruit syrups. Unfortunately, there is no way to mark cocktails as favorites or to export the recipe. Since the program is only in English you have to googling in the list of ingredients sometimes what is meant by that. With a few more recipes, favorites and localization, there are five stars.
