Blinker

The Blinker is an old cocktail, tracing its roots back at least as far as its first publication in 1934 in The Official Mixer’s Manual by Patrick Gavin Duffy. The original recipe featured grenadine, and wasn’t much to write home about, which may explain why the recipe languished in obscurity for so long.

Dr. Cocktail – Ted Haigh, to Muggles – remixed that boring old recipe, switching the grenadine for raspberry syrup and tinkering the proportions until it was just right, perfectly suited to the modern palate. Dr. Cocktail specifies that it ought to be made with white grapefruit juice, which is more bitter and less sweet than pink or red varieties, but harder to get in many parts of the world. If all you have is pink grapefruit, we promise you that it will still be delicious; however, you may want to make your raspberry syrup a scant measure.

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.
