This Pho Cocktail is Made from Onions, Charred Ginger & Sriracha

20130603_emmanuellephococktail

Philadelphia bartender, Phoebe Esmon, has created a pho gimlet based on the Vietnamese beef and noodle soup. She combines gin or vodka with lime juice and a homemade broth made from onions, charred ginger, pecans, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg and star anise. Then come the mint, basil and cilantro before a pickled bean sprout garnish and a squeeze of Sriracha.

Courageously called the “Worthy Fucking Adversary,” this $12 cocktail is on Philadelphia bar Emmanuelle’s “New Shit Has Come to Light” menu of house originals. The list, created by Esmon and her fiancé-slash-fellow-barkeep Christian Gaal, includes cocktails such as the “Fickt nicht mit dem Raketenmensch” (“Don’t fuck with the Rocketman”) and “Quakers with a Vengeance” — worthy adversaries, indeed.
