Plum Splet

Plum Splet cocktail with plum wine, lemon juice, and sparkling water

We saw the recipe for the Plum Splet in an episode of Love is Like a Cocktail, a cute anime series about a bartender who makes cocktails for his wife. We didn’t know what a “splet” was, so we did a little digging and discovered that it was a mistranslation of ume supureddo, or “plum spread.”

The drink doesn’t taste much like a spread; it’s tart and bright rather than jammy or rich. Given that, and the fact that so many folks are searching for a “plum splet” recipe like we were, we’ve kept the mis-translated name.

We did adjust the recipe, which originally called for a way-too-tart 1:1 ratio of plum wine to lemon juice. If you have a very sweet plum wine, you may wish to increase the amount of lemon juice just a bit.

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.
