Saturn

Saturn cocktail with gin, lemon juice, orgeat, passion fruit puree, and Velvet Falernum

The Saturn is one of the best gin-based recipes in the tiki family – and it was nearly lost to the annals of history before Jeff “Beachbum” Berry dug up the original 1967 recipe from California bartender J. “Popo” Galsini.

We’re fans of this tinkered recipe, adapted by mixologist Garret Richard of NYC’s Slowly Shirley tiki bar. Richard is one of the folks responsible for the current resurgence of interest in tiki drinks, and his recipe is a little more modern and better-balanced than the original, which had a much larger proportion of passion fruit puree. Since the updated recipe has a smaller amount of passion fruit puree, you could replace it with a passion fruit liqueur.

Invented at the peak of the Space Age, the Saturn demands a fitting garnish. A cherry wrapped in planetary “rings” of lime zest is perfect, but any over-the-top garnish will do.

Ingredients

Instructions

Combine all ingredients in a blender, along with a cupful of ice. Blend until the ice is completely broken up. Pour into an ice-filled glass and garnish.

The Saturn can also be served shaken over ice, if you prefer.

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.
