Recipe: Omar Sharif Cocktail

Sitting at the The Kitchen bar in Boulder, Colorado a few years ago, I needed a drink to go along with a Moroccan menu that chef/owner Hugo Mathison and I were featuring at The Kitchen Upstairs. Bartenders Steve Peters and Karim Boulet weighed in and we created a cocktail poised for an evening of magic. Collaborations are the most creative.

Preserved lemons, seductive spices, tantalizing tagines, oranges in orange blossom water, and a close-to-the-lips encounter with ‘Omar Sharif’. That is what Moroccan dreams are made of… While you await the departure of your magic carpet ride to Marrakech, sip on this elegant cocktail wherever you are!


1 1/2 oz of Ketel One Citron
1 oz of pomegranate liqueur
1 oz of pineapple juice
1 squeeze of lemon
2 or 3 shakes of cinnamon
5 or 6 mint leaves

Shaken not stirred…

Collaboration between Peggy Markel, Steve Peters and Karim Boulet.
