This film has a quite original plot, but unfortunately it’s just not very good.
Tigisti. Daniel Tesfamariam. 2012. Eritrea.
- 2 parts homemade tej
- 2 parts dark rum
- 1 part lime juice
- club soda
Shake vigorously with ice and strain into a glass. Top off with club soda and garnish with a Maraschino cherry and an orange slice.
To make homemade tej, heat up a cup of honey in a sauce pan and keep it simmering for ten minutes. Add more cinnamon and nutmeg than you think is reasonable. Add a cup of pureed pear. Simmer for another fifteen minutes. Stir often. Cool before adding to the cocktail.
I made the tej last weekend and the kitchen still smells strongly of honey. The tej itself is kinda tasty, but mixed with lime and rum, it all turned rather… bad…
