Vieux Carré

Vieux Carre rye whiskey and cognac cocktail

We like to offer pronunciations in this app, so you don’t sound like a tool ordering one of these drinks at a bar. The shame of trying to order a Caipirinha when we’d only ever read about it – well, we’d save you from such a fate. With that said, we admit it: we don’t know how to say it and we can’t find any kind of consensus about it online or in our books. “Voo Cah-REH” is probably your safest bet. However you say it, this New Orleans classic (it’s named for the French Quarter) is smooth and mysterious, with the character of a lost age. The original recipes all call for equal parts of Angostura and Peychaud’s bitters, but honestly you’ll be fine if you only have one or the other.

Ingredients

Instructions

Stir with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass, or build it in a short ice-filled glass and stir. It’s also pretty good served neat – meaning, no ice.

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.
