Middle Class Bartending: 8 Nights of Booze

     Normally Mondays are reserved for food recipes, but in honor of the Festival of Lights, we're doing eight drink recipes spread out over Hanukkah. I owe you recipes for yesterday and today. The first drink is a riff on the classic Zombie. I give you the closest approximation in Jewish mythology: the Dybbuk.

You'll feel like this after a couple of these
  • 1 part white rum
  • 1 part dark rum
  • 1 part gold rum
  • 1 part MD 20/20 Tangerine Dream*
  • 1 part pineapple juice
  • 1/2 part 151 proof rum
  • 1 part lime juice
  1. Put all ingredients except 151 rum in shaker with ice
  2. Shake and pour over ice in Zombie glass
  3. Top with 151 rum
*Did you know that MD 20/20 is actually made by Mogen David? You do now!

     Next up (if you're still standing) is a shot that's technically more appropriate for Rosh Hashanah, but what can you do? I'm trying to come up with eight drinks here. Cut me some slack. 

Gan Eden
After a few of these there's a good chance you'll be
wandering around the garden naked, too.
  • 1 part Evan Williams Apple Orchard
  • 1 part honey whiskey (I like American Honey)
  1. Combine ingredients in shot glass
