Million Dollar

Million Dollar cocktail with gin, sweet vermouth, pineapple juice, grenadine, and egg white

The Million Dollar is a delightfully frothy, silky gin cocktail that doesn’t taste nearly as vermouth-forward as its recipe might indicate. It has a beautiful coral color that just begs to be served in your daintiest, loveliest glass. Like many ancestral cocktails, it’s measured in small portions – leave your giant 11oz Crate & Barrel oversized martini glasses on the shelf for this one.

The origins of the Million Dollar Cocktail are hazy, but it’s typically credited to either Ngiam Tong Boon at the Raffles Hotel in Singapore 1910, or else Louis Eppinger at the Grand Hotel in Yokohama further back in 1884.

It never made much of a splash outside of Asia, but to this day you’ll find it served in upscale hotel bars in Japan. It’s even made its way into popular culture, popping up in anime like Bartender and Hinamatsuri.

Ingredients

Instructions

Start out by dry-shaking the cocktail: add all ingredients to the shaker, without ice, and shake it vigorously for a few seconds to help build up the egg foam. Add ice and shake again, and double-strain through a wire mesh strainer into a cocktail or coupe glass. Garnish with a pineapple wedge or lemon twist.

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.
