Central Standard Swizzle

Central Standard Swizzle cocktail with aged rum, falernum, lemon juice and mint

A swizzle is a (typically) rum-based drink, served on crushed ice and stirred with a special swizzle stick, which has a flared, spiked bottom to help agitate the drink. You don’t really need a special stick; a normal barspoon is fine.

This particular swizzle is a favorite house cocktail at Central Standard in Austin. It’s a pretty straightforward rum swizzle, distinguished mostly by the use of lemon juice instead of lime, and by the gorgeous topper of blood-red Angostura bitters.

The bitters are more for scent than taste, since the drink is usually served with a straw. Our measurement is based on the size of the Collins glasses we used; you’ll need enough dashes to ensure that the top of the drink is completely soaked in the stuff.

Ingredients

Instructions

Muddle the mint at the bottom of a tall glass. Add the rum, lemon juice, and falernum and fill the glass halfway with crushed ice. Stir with a swizzle stick or a barspoon. Top off the glass with more crushed ice and garnish with the aromatic bitters and a few sprigs of mint.

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.
