Black Cup cocktail recipe - Cocktail Party

Black Cup

Black Cup cocktail with strawberry, simple syrup, Port wine, lemon juice, and lemon-lime soda or sparkling water

We love port wine in all its forms, but there’s a serious lack of good cocktail recipes that include it – much less for drinks you could sip on a hot summer’s day. Master mixologist Jim Meehan does his part to rectify this omission with the Black Cup, a juicy, refreshing long drink. It’s named after Noval Black, a young port that Meehan uses in his recipe – but it’s equally delicious with an older port, or a tawny port.

You can use lemon-lime soda or sparkling water to top, depending on your preference. In fact, you could even use a citrus, cucumber, or berry-flavored sparkling water for a nice twist, instead.

Ingredients

Instructions

Muddle the strawberry with the simple syrup in a shaker. Add the port and lemon juice, add ice, and then shake vigorously. Strain into an ice-filled tall glass, and top with the sparkling water or 7-up.

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.
