Gypsy Wedding

Gypsy Wedding sour cocktail with grapes, gin, aquavit, Velvet Falernum, lime juice, grapefruit juice, and honey syrup

The Gypsy Wedding (please pardon the somewhat-outdated terminology) is a creative, mystical drink that shows off the massive talent of Death & Co’s Jillian Vose. The ingredients are a veritable grocery list of fruit and herb flavors, but it’s the fresh green grapes that really shine, offset by the enticing caraway flavor of aquavit.

At Death & Co, the drink is served with an optional rim of toasted fennel salt – just fennel seeds toasted for a minute or two, and then ground up and mixed with kosher salt. It’s a wonderful addition, but the drink is still lovely with a simple salt rim, or just served plain.



If you’d like to make the toasted fennel salt rim, begin by tossing a pinch of fennel seeds into a small pan (without oil). Toast on medium heat for a minute or two, until they’re more pungent. Grind with a mortar and pestle, in a spice grinder, or under a heavy pan or a big can. Mix with an equal amount of kosher salt. Moisten the outer rim of a cocktail glass with a wedge of lime, and roll the glass in the toasted fennel salt.

To make the drink, first muddle the grapes in a shaker. Add the remaining ingredients and ice, and shake well. Double-strain through a fine mesh strainer into a cocktail or coupe glass (use the prepared glass, if you rimmed it earlier).

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.
