Shower Spritz

Shower Spritz cocktail with Pamplemousse LaCroix, Aperol, St. Germain, and a pinch of salt.

We’re huge fans of the “dressed can” technique, pioneered by Eben Freeman at Genuine Liquorette. It’s the perfect mix of highbrow and lowbrow, classy and tacky.

The Shower Spritz is mixologist Natasha David’s riff on the dressed can, featuring the ever-popular Pamplemousse LaCroix. You can use any canned grapefruit-flavored sparkling water you like (but it should be unsweetened). David calls for Aperol, the sweetest and friendliest of the bitter citrus apéritifs.

David’s garnish for the drink is impressively over-the-top: a big fat edible orchid, a lime wheel, a fat sprig of mint, all dusted over with lime and grapefruit zest and hot-pink edible glitter. You don’t have to go to such extremes, but there is something to be said for the experience of drinking such a well-styled drink from such an everyday can.

Ingredients

Instructions

Pour out about 2.5 ounces (75 mL) of the can of sparkling water. Add the remaining ingredients to the can (a funnel helps here). Stir gently, and garnish with a mint sprig, a lime wheel, an edible flower, and anything else you like. Serve with a straw.

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.
