Date-Palm Cocktail

From Good Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman

Happy New Year! Lots of exciting things happening in 2020. I’m happy to announce two special editions of The Geeky Chef cookbooks! One will focus solely on food and include recipes from both The Geeky Chef Cookbook and The Geeky Chef Strikes Back. The other will focus on drinks (of both the alcoholic and nonalcoholic variety) and include recipes from all three of the current cookbooks! These books are absolutely beautiful, inside and out, and will make fantastic gifts. Either for the geeky chef in your life, or, you know, yourself. Available for preorder now!

I’ll admit, 2019 brought some great new geeky things to obsess over, not the least of which was the Good Omens adaption. I could not be happier to see one of my favorite books so wonderfully adapted. Now, I know you probably got most of your drinking done last night but you may crave a little hair of the hellhound named Dog, and that’s where this beauty comes in. In Good Omens the novel, Crowley and Aziraphale have just discovered their little blunder in misplacing the Antichrist. They are arguing about what sort of punishment each could expect from heaven and hell respectively and Aziraphale asks Crowley if he remembers Gomorrah. Crowley, missing the point, reminisces about “a great little tavern where you could get these terrific fermented date-palm cocktails with nutmeg and crushed lemongrass-“

Ingredients
1oz Bols Date liqueur
2oz Tubi 60 or Gin
1 tbs. Lemongrass Paste (premade or make it yourself)
2 tbs. Dark Brown Sugar (or to taste)
1 Tbs. Lemon Juice
1/4 tsp. Ground Nutmeg
Pinch of Sea Salt


Directions
1. Combine lemongrass paste with brown sugar and lemon juice.
2. Add all ingredients except salt and nutmeg to a cocktail shaker filled with ice.
3. Shake well.
4. Pour into a serving glass and sprinkle with nutmeg and sea salt.
5. Await divine judgement.
