Hinky Dinks Fizzy

Hinky Dinks Fizzy, a sparkling tropical cocktail made with sparkling wine, aged rum, gin, apricot liqueur, pineapple juice, lime juice, and passion fruit syrup

The Hinky Dinks Fizzy was created in 1984 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Trader Vic’s, the classic chain of escapist restaurants that helped to fuel the tiki craze. In this version, as preserved in the Smuggler’s Cove recipe book, it has all the elements of a tropical punch in a light, drinkable format.

The Smuggler’s Cove version calls for a lightly-aged rum like Plantation 3 Star, and it’s a good suggestion. A darker, vanilla-soaked aged rum (like the Zaya 12 Year we tried it with first) fights with the effervescence of the sparkling wine and the crispness of the lime and gin; a rum with less character provides the necessary backbone without overwhelming the delicate balance.

Ingredients

Instructions

Pour the sparkling wine into a large snifter, tiki mug, or tall glass. Add the remaining ingredients to a shaker. Add ice and shake (or flash-blend, if you have a drink mixer). Strain into the prepared glass, top with crushed or pebble ice, and garnish with fresh mint (and a pretty edible flower, if you have one).

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.
