WFC Mauritania: Timbuktu

This is a very pretty film, and the way it portrays ISIS as buffoons is very amusing. And then it isn’t amusing any more.

Some of the actors are compelling, but most of them are really, really stiff. I assume they’re not-professionals, but still…

Timbuktu. Abderrahmane Sissako. 2014. Mauritania.

Mauretania Mauritania

  • peppermint tea
  • mint leaves
  • sugar
  • gin
  • lime
  • lemon

Brew the tea, add sugar, and cool. Add gin. Fill glasses with ice and pour the fluids over. Garnish with sliced lemon, lime and some mint leaves.

This isn’t really a Mauritanian cocktail, because I just couldn’t find any recipes. But they seem to drink a lot of mint tea, so I just brewed some and added some gin. So sew me.
