Death Flip

Death Flip cocktail with tequila, yellow Chartreuse, Jägermeister, simple syrup, egg, and nutmeg

Let’s be honest – the Death Flip has a pretty scary-looking ingredient list, and we put off testing it for a long time until we were forced to do it on a dare. We needn’t have waited – the Death Flip turned out to be an incredibly delicious drink! It’s spicy and rich and just-barely-sweet, almost like a grown-up bitter eggnog.

The recipe, by Chris Hysted at Melbourne’s Black Pearl, calls for Jägermeister as its Kräuterlikör. You could use a different brand, but make sure it’s on the sweeter side, since it provides most of the balance to the herbal flavors in the drink. The rest comes from a dash of syrup and from yellow Chartreuse, the sweetest of the yellow herbal liqueurs.

Nutmeg is occasionally treated as an optional garnish, but it’s necessary for this recipe; that initial nose of sweet spice is the silk ribbon that ties all the drink’s wide-ranging flavors together.

Instructions

Vigorously shake all ingredients (except the nutmeg) with ice. Double-strain through a fine mesh strainer into a small chilled glass. Dust the foam with the nutmeg (preferably fresh-grated).

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.
