There are two versions of this holiday-themed, milk-based cocktail. The first is faster, and the milk stays white. The second takes time, because the milk is put through a “clarification” process that turns it completely clear. Combine this mini miracle with ingredients that bring latkes to mind and you have the perfect Hanukkah-party potable.
When challenged with the task, Chaim Dauermann, bar manager of The Up & Up in Greenwich Village, devised a drink that sounds harder to make than it is. A take on a classic “milk punch,” the milk undergoes a seemingly miraculous transformation from the white stuff you pour over cereal to a perfectly clear concoction that can last for months in the fridge without spoiling. Made from potato vodka, apple brandy, and milk (think sour cream), the “Liquid Latke” is part science project; part potent potable — Hanukkah in a cocktail glass. Dauermann described his creative process to Forward food editor Liza Schoenfein:
The Garden Terrace on the roof of the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in Jerusalem feels like another world, not a bad thing these days. The setting is enchanting, with rattans sofas and chairs separated by trees strung with fairy lights. It’s a beautiful place to relax and enjoy the cool Jerusalem night air. The wait staff even offer shawls if it gets too cool as the winds pick up.
It’s been a tumultuous month — Donald Trump is the next president and Leonard Cohen is dead. And that’s more reason than ever to pour a sweet drink for Thanksgiving. We’ve got you covered, with two dessert cocktails that are just right for the occasion. Each comes with a Jewish twist, made from mahia, the Moroccan Jewish fig liquor that’s a guilty pleasure in North Africa. My sister Rebecca and I created these drinks — the Grapefruit Gobbler and the Trumpcle Antidote — using a bottle of Nahmias et Fils mahia and the sundry products in our kitchen. Here are our recipes.
Perhaps you saw Donald Trump spokesperson Scottie Nell Hughes refer to molotov cocktails in JayZ’s “Run This Town” video as “mazel tov cocktails.” And while the Washington Post quickly jumped in to say that such a drink actually exists on the menu of a DuPont Circle bar, it seemed to me that I should take a few minutes to mix up my own version, just in time for election night. (Because who doesn’t want to experiment with cocktail making at 11 a.m. on this particular Tuesday?)
