White Noise

White Noise cocktail with Cocchi Americano Bianco, elderflower liqueur, sparkling water, and grapefruit peel

The White Noise is the jewel in the crown of Portland Hunt + Alpine Club’s cocktail menu; proprietors Andrew & Briana Volk have been serving it nonstop since they opened, and it’s one of their most popular drinks.

It’s easy to see why it’s such a crowd-pleaser. Its low ABV means you can have one without getting sloshed, and it’s so light and crisp and eminently sippable that it’s hard to resist having a second one.

The Volks recommend Cocchi Americano Bianco, which is slightly more bitter and less sweet than Lillet Blanc (another white wine apéritif); either will be fine.

The grapefruit peel is a lovely garnish, but it’s also a critical ingredient – the scent of the oils from the peel, carried on the bubbly fizz of the sparkling water, is what makes the drink so perfect.

Ingredients

Instructions

Add the white wine apéritif and the elderflower liqueur to a short glass. Fill the glass with ice, top with soda water, and stir gently. Fold and crack the grapefruit peel over the drink to express its oils, rub it on the rim of the glass, and then add it to the drink as a garnish.

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.
