The Drunken Pharoh

Refreshing Beverage of the Week
“The Drunken Pharoh” is a drink recipe my mom found for me last week. It was featured at a restaurant in New York called JoeDoe and I think it is a very creative use of ingredients which on their own are quite problematic. Check it out!

1 1/2 ounces Bourbon
2 ounces Manachevitz Malaga wine (sweet and red and thick)
1/2 ounce lemon juice
club soda
sugared matzoh crumbs to rim the glass

To make the sugared matzoh crumbs, take 1 piece matzoh and toss it into the food processor with 1 tablespoon confectioners sugar and pulse till fine crumbs are formed. Brush the rim of your glass with a dab of simple syrup and then dip it in the crumbs to make a nice edge. In a cocktail shaker, combine bourbon, wine, lemon juice and ice and shake. Strain into your rimmed glass over ice, and top with club soda. L'chaim! By the way, this drink is not actually kosher for Passover!
