Den Knickerbocker gibt es seit über 160 Jahren. Auch wenn er nicht mehr so allgegenwärtig ist wie einst, ist er keinesfalls angestaubt. Er verdient es, wieder so populär zu werden, wie er einst war.

Knickerbocker (von Tad Shell, in Whitfield: Here’s How, 1941).

Der Knickerbocker ist ein alter Klassiker, der mit seinen Zutaten Rum, Limettensaft, Sirup und Likör, serviert auf gestoßenem Eis, durchaus als Vorläufer der Tiki-Drinks betrachtet werden kann. Er ist quasi der Mai Tai der 1850er Jahre. [4]

Auch wenn bereits 1852 ein Drink mit dem Namen „Knickerbocker“ auf Bostoner Barkarten verzeichnet ist, [4] und in einer Anzeige in der Baltimore Sun am 19. Oktober 1852 beworben wird, [9] erscheint die gedruckte Rezeptur erstmals bei Jerry Thomas in seinem Buch „How to Mix Drinks, or The Bon Vivant’s Companion“:

Knickerbocker (Jerry Thomas, 1862)

(Use a small bar glass)
1/2 a lime, or lemon, squeeze out the juice, and put rind
and juice in the glass.
2 teaspoonfuls of raspberry syrup.
1 wine-glass Santa Cruz rum.
1/2 teaspoonful of Curaçoa.
Cool with shaved ice; shake up well, and ornament
with berries in season. If this is not sweet enough, put in
a little more raspberry syrup;

Wer den Knickerbocker erfunden hat, und woher er stammt, läßt sich nicht mehr feststellen. Wahrscheinlich stammt er jedoch aus New York, denn dort war der Begriff „Knickerbocker“ in aller Munde und Bezeichnung für die verschiedensten Dinge. [4]

Sein Name stammt aus der Satire „A History of New York“, die 1809 von Washington Irving unter dem Pseudonym Diedrich Knickerbocker veröffentlicht wurde. Die Hauptfigur heißt Jensen Knickerbocker, und die Satire beschreibt die ersten Siedler New Yorks, damals noch Nieuw Amsterdam genannt. Sie kamen aus Holland und trugen wadenlange „Schlumperhosen“. Diese „knee-breeches“, eine Art Kniebundhose, wurden in den 1850er Jahren auch Knickerbocker genannt; ebenso verstand man darunter ein niederländisch-stämmiges Mitglied der New Yorker Aristokratie mit seinem altertümlichen Verhalten, und der Name wurde zum Spitznamen für New Yorker Patrizier.

Den Namen „Knickerbocker“ übernahm Washington Irving von seinem Freund Herman Knickerbacker (1779-1855), einem Urenkel von Harmen Jansen van Wijhe (um 1650 – um 1720) und änderte ihn in Knickerbocker ab. Harmen Jansen stammt von der Familie van Wye, nennt sich in der Neuen Welt auch van Bommel, da Bommel der Ort ist, aus dem er stammte. Selber unterschreibt er 1882 auch mit Hermen Jansen van Wyekycback(e). 1682 wird er auch mit dem Nachnamen Kinnekerbacker geführt. In den Folgejahren gibt es zahlreiche alternative Schreibweisen wie Knickelbacker, Knickerbacker Van Wyye, Kinckerbacker,  Nyckbacker oder Kynckbacker. Mit dem Erfolg von Washington Irvings Buch nahmen einige Familienmitglieder dann den Namen Knickerbocker an. [5] [6] [7] [8] [11] [12] [13]

Der Drink erhielt seinen Namen vielleicht nach Diedrich Knickerbocker. Vielleicht auch nach dem Spitznamen der New Yorker Patrizier, vielleicht nach dem 1811 gegründeten Knickerbocker Bootsclub, vielleicht nach dem 1845 gegründeten Knickerbocker Base Ball Club. Es gibt jedoch auch eine weitere Möglichkeit: Der Knickerbocker gehört zu den „lesser punches“, er ist ein „kleinerer“ Punch, der im Glas und für nur eine Person hergestellt wird. Es kann also auch sein, daß dieser „verkürzte“ Punch in Anspielung auf die in den 1850er Jahren populären, ebenfalls „verkürzten“ wadenlangen Hosen, die in dieser Zeit auch als „Knickerbocker“ bezeichnet wurden, diesen Namen erhielt. [4] [9]

Jedenfalls war der Knickerbocker-Drink in den 1850er und 1860er Jahren überaus populär. [4] Auch wenn er in den Jahren danach nicht mehr so allgegenwärtig war, war er doch, wie die Rezeptsammlung zeigt, zu allen Zeiten präsent.

Die Rezepte sind dabei erstaunlich konstant geblieben. Zwar finden sich gelegentlich Drinks mit dem Namen „Knickerbocker“, die nichts mit dem Original zu tun haben, doch diese sind eindeutig in der Minderheit. Überwiegend wird Santa Cruz oder St. Croix Rum empfohlen, und wie wir in eigenen Verkostungen festgestellt haben, ist dieser Rum in der Tat optimal für einen Knickerbocker geeignet. Der ansonsten auch oft aufgeführte Jamaika-Rum ist zu dominant. Ab den 1920er Jahren wird gerne auch Orangensaft hinzugegeben. Klassisch wird der Drink auf gestoßenem Eis mit Strohhalm und – ganz ein Drink der 1850er und 1860er Jahre – mit einer reichhaltigen Dekoration an Früchten garniert. In Ermangelung an gestoßenem Eis, und weil wir den Aufwand scheuen, es herzustellen, verwenden wir kleine Eiswürfelchen von ca. 1 cm Kantenlänge, was übrigens sehr gut funktioniert.

Falls Ihr den Knickerbocker noch nicht kennt: Versucht ihn einmal! Nach wie vor gilt das, was in der „New York World“ 1882 geschrieben wurde: „in the resume of what is good to drink in the summer-time the Knickerbocker should not be forgotten.“ Vergeßt also nicht, wie gut ein Knickerbocker im Sommer mundet – doch auch im Winter ist nichts daran auszusetzen.
