An Israeli music star is stirring things up on Jerusalem's bar scene
As frontman for the Israeli hip-hop band Hadag Nachash, Shaanan Streett is famous for his tolerance-promoting rhymes. So when he recently co-founded the buzzy Jerusalem bar Casino de Paris (pictured), he had the original menu printed in English, Hebrew and Arabic. “It’s a statement,” he says, “that this city belongs to everyone and that in this establishment everyone is invited.” Here, Streett shares the recipe for a drink menu highlight, the Pear Street No. 1.
PEAR STREET NO. 1
1 1/2 oz. white rum
1/2 oz. pear syrup
1/2 oz. fresh lemon juice
Shake all ingredients with crushed ice and pour into a glass lined with plenty of fresh mint and finely chopped lemon slices.
