Hightail Out

Hightail Out cocktail with blanc vermouth, rum, citrus juice, cinnamon syrup and chocolate mole bitters

We’ve kitchen-tested so many recipes for the Cocktail Party app that these days, we can pretty much look at any recipe and simulate its flavor in our minds.

Not so with the Hightail Out, from mixologist Ivy Mix at Brooklyn’s Leyenda cocktail bar. Blanc vermouth with cinnamon syrup? Spicy chocolate mole bitters? We couldn’t figure out what this recipe was going to taste like.

So we made it, and it was so good and so complex that we still can’t explain what it tastes like. Ever wake up from a dream and struggle to remember what it was before it slips away? Every sip of the Hightail Out is like that – each little taste different from the last, a new note singing out and making you forget the last incredible flavor, tempting you to sip again and find the next one.

If you’re reading this because you’ve got all the ingredients to make this, do yourself a favor and just do it. There’s a reason Ivy Mix wins all those mixology awards year after year, and it ain’t her cool name.

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.
