Sip Harlem From a Shot Glass


What does Harlem taste like? We’ll soon know. A Dutch “shot drink” called Harlem with a wink to New York and the original Netherlands town of Haarlem is now available in some Manhattan bars and liquor stores (including SideBar, Faces & Names, and Smith’s, none of which are anywhere near Harlem). The drink is an “80 proof blend of fresh herbs and spices with a hint of mandarin.” If that’s the Dutch treat, we fear the Dutch hangover.
