This week in 1698, Tsar Peter The Great tried to change the face of Russia… by instituting a beard tax. Fight the power - and put some hair on your chest - with a classic cocktail from America’s most famous Russian-themed restaurant.
“The Rasputin,” as mixed by Ken Biberaj, manager at the Russian Tea Room in New York City.
In a cocktail shaker, combine:
- 1 part Czar’s Gold Vodka
- 2 parts Frangelico
Shake and pour over ice. Drink it quick. Pay the penalty: 100 Rubles (or local equivalent).
