Stormy Weather

Stormy Weather cocktail with wine, rum, lime juice, agave syrup and ginger beer

We’re always looking for new wine cocktails to add to Cocktail Party, but good ones are few and far between. Wine – especially red wine – is a tricky ingredient to incorporate into a well-balanced drink, and it takes a skilled mixologist to make it work.

When we first found the Stormy Weather recipe in the archives of the Spirits column over at The Washington Post, we had our doubts. At first glance, it’s all over the place – wine and rum and ginger and agave? Would any of those things even go together, we wondered?

Lucky for us, mixologist Trudy Thomas at the Camelback Inn in Scottsdale, Arizona knows what’s she’s doing. The result is a lovely ruby-red jewel of a drink, dominated by fruit and rum flavors with a hint of wine on the finish. Thomas developed this recipe specifically for Yellow Tail’s own Shiraz blend, but it’s excellent with any full-bodied, fruity red wine.

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.
