Filibuster

Filibuster cocktail with rye whiskey, lemon juice, maple syrup, egg white, and Angostura bitters

Rye and maple are a classic combo that bring to mind cozy sweaters and knit blankets, and the Filibuster from San Francisco bartender Erik Adkins is one of our favorite examples of their synchronicity.

You might be tempted to think that Grade A maple syrup is better than Grade B, but maple syrup grading is based on color and clarity. For mixing drinks, we actually prefer Grade B for its stronger flavor and greater viscosity.

Adkins’ recipe calls for a garnish of Angostura bitters on top of the egg foam, made into a pretty pattern by way of a toothpick dragged through the drops of bitters. We also like it with black walnut bitters; they’re not as pretty, but the scent marries perfectly with the maple and the spice of the rye.

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.
