Blackbeard

Blackbeard cocktail with blackberries, gin, aquavit, pineapple juice, lemon juice, and agave nectar

The Blackbeard is the creation of Daniel Eun, a bartender at PDT back in 2008. Aquavit and pineapple juice have always had a strange, beautiful friendship; blackberries added to the mix makes for an oddly wonderful triad.

The drink is poured unstrained into the glass, blackberry guts and all. It’s then topped with crushed ice, which forms a sort of lid over the berry matter, keeping it out of your mouth as you sip. Typical cube-ice won’t have this effect; if that’s what you have, you might prefer to double-strain the drink instead of drinking chunks of berry with each mouthful.

Ingredients

Instructions

Muddle the blackberries in a shaker. Add the remaining ingredients and ice, and shake vigorously. Pour unstrained (if you have crushed or pebble ice), or double-strained (if you don’t) into a short glass. Top with more ice (crushed or pebble, preferably), and garnish with fresh mint and blackberries.

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.
