White Tie & Tiara

White Tie & Tiara cocktail with rose water, citrus vodka, lychee juice, white grapefruit juice, and jasmine syrup

As we approached the 900th drink added to Cocktail Party, we knew we’d need something appropriate for the occasion. As providence would have it, this lovely recipe for the White Tie & Tiara slid across our desk at Cocktail Party HQ, complete with a difficult-but-not-impossible ingredient list and promising a heady bouquet of citrus and flowers.

The recipe comes from the makers of Grey Goose Le Citron vodka (although it will work with any citrus vodka of decent quality). It specifically calls for white grapefruit juice, which we vehemently support. The pink stuff will do, and is certainly easier to find – but the bitterness and complexity of white grapefruit truly sings in this drink, keeping the sweetness of the lychee juice and jasmine syrup in check.

Ingredients

Instructions

Rinse or spritz the inside of a chilled cocktail glass with the rose water, dumping out any excess. Shake the remaining ingredients with ice, and strain into the prepared glass. Garnish with an edible white flower and/or a grapefruit twist.

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.
