Horse’s Neck

Horse's Neck cocktail with bourbon, ginger ale, and bitters

The Horse’s Neck is a classic American cooler, originating in Atlantic city sometime in the early 20th century. It’s distinguished by its garnish: a long, loopy twist of lemon filling the glass, with the end draped over the edge of the glass like a horse poking his head over the stable wall.

Given its age, the Horse’s Neck has seen many variations on its recipe. Early recipes call for brandy, although we prefer newer variants with bourbon as the base spirit. It can be made with either ginger ale or sparkling water; we like the sweetness of ginger ale (or the bite of ginger beer), but it’s refreshing with sparkling water too.

Ingredients

Instructions

Peel a long, thin strip of lemon – as long as you can get it! Coil it up by twisting it around your finger, and then drop it into the glass, with the end peeking over the lip of the glass. Carefully fill the glass with ice, making sure the lemon twist is nicely arranged against the outer edges of the glass. Build the drink in the glass in the order given.

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.
