Elevenses

Elevenses cocktail with Irish whiskey, Irish breakfast tea, lemon juice, and raspberry preserves

Elevenses is a mid-morning snack time common to many cultures. In most, it’s used to munch on crackers or cheese and to sip on tea – but in some parts of the US and in Ireland in the 19th century, elevenses meant it was time for a nip of whiskey!

This drink is from the website of Tullamore D.E.W., a brand of Irish whiskey. Their recipe calls for Irish breakfast tea specifically, which can be difficult to find. It’s not too different from the more common English breakfast tea, although it is a little more malty and smoky thanks to its higher ratio of Assam tea. If all you have is a plain black tea, it’ll still be a lovely drink, albeit with a little less personality.

Classic English fruits make for the best jams to use here – blackberry and raspberry are our favorites.

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.
