Spaceface

Spaceface cocktail with blanco tequila, pineapple syrup, lime, honey, and creme de menthe

Crème de menthe might seem like an odd pairing for pineapple and lime, but just a touch of it makes for out-of-this-world refreshment. Case in point: the Spaceface from Julia McKinkey at Chicago’s Young American.

It’s a bright, crisp drink just perfect for a hot day. The pineapple is faint, but lovely, meeting the vegetal notes of tequila in a union of freshness. The star here is really the garnish; the drink should offer a noseful of fresh mint from the giant bouquet tucked into the glass.

Ingredients

Instructions

Begin by muddling the honey with lime wedge in the bottom of a shaker until the juice is released. Add the mint and lightly muddle again, just enough to release the oils without tearing the leaves. Add the remaining ingredients and ice and shake well. Strain into an ice-filled short glass and garnish with a huge bouquet of fresh mint.

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.
