Jimmy Dean

Jimmy Dean cocktail with mint, bourbon, honey liqueur, orange juice, and black tea

The Jimmy Dean is a tasty, brunch-friendly bourbon cocktail from Jeff Hagley at Restaurant Eugene in Atlanta and named for the famous purveyor of breakfast meats.

The star ingredient is Bärenjäger, a honey liqueur we love to bits. If you don’t have that specific brand, you could try one of the many honey bourbons on the market – but you might want to cut back a little bit on the plain bourbon, just to keep the proof down.

Hagley’s recipe calls for orange pekoe tea, a type of black tea. If you don’t have that type on hand, your favorite black tea will do – we like it with English breakfast tea.

Ingredients

Instructions

Start by brewing the tea, and then allow it to chill a bit.

Bruise the mint leaves with your fingers, and toss them in the shaker. Add all remaining ingredients (except the brewed tea), and shake with ice. Strain into a tall ice-filled glass, top with the tea, and garnish with a freshly-slapped sprig of mint.

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.
