Gooney Goo-Goo

Gooney Goo-Goo cocktail with Port wine and cinnamon syrup

If you want to know the story behind this flaming tiki delight, you’ll have to take a trip to Brooklyn and ask bartender Brad Farran at the storied Clover Club – we haven’t been able to figure it out!

Farran serves his with a nice touch: he scoops out half of a lime, flips it inside-out, and uses it to hold the overproof rum so he can set it on fire and grate cinnamon over the top.

Classy, but when we tried it in our too-small tiki mugs, the lime got stuck and we choked on a faceful of hot 151. These days, we prefer to simply float the overproof rum on top, which makes for a much smoother first sip.

Ingredients

Instructions

Shake everything (except for the overproof rum) and strain into an ice-filled tall glass or tiki mug. Float the overproof rum on top, or put it in a hollowed-out lime half if you’re feeling fancy.

Ignite the rum and grate cinnamon into the flames for a nice little fireworks show. Extinguish the flame and drink when the rum has cooled a bit.

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.
