Cocktail: Omar Sharif

We kicked off our cooking class with Peggy Markel by drinking this delicious cocktail named after the famed Doctor Zhivago actor Omar Sharif. The cinnamon adds an exotic touch. All the girls agreed that it tasted great, was really refreshing, and we were in such agreement that we decided we needed another round. You don’t have to make Moroccan food to enjoy this drink, it would be fun specialty drink for your next dinner party.  Mix up a batch in advance and watch the party come to life.
