South Beach

South Beach sour cocktail with Campari, Amaretto, orange juice, and simple syrup

Campari cocktails are all the rage these days – the bitterer, the better, it would seem. That wasn’t the case back in 1992, when bartending legend Dale DeGroff was charged with the task of inventing a Campari cocktail that would appeal to the palates of the time, an era where Cosmos and Long Island Ice Teas were considered the height of cocktail culture.

The result was the South Beach, an easy-drinking, barely-bitter sour cocktail with warm notes of almonds to offset the bright citrus. Unlike many cocktails of that decade, this one stands the test of time – even to our sophisticated modern tastes, this one is a standout.

You could swap in Aperol for Campari, but be forewarned that it will be quite sweet; you may wish to reduce or omit the simple syrup.

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.
