Welcome back to another installment of boozings, where we try all of Philly’s Top 15 Drinks! Next up we go to Zahav, for the Lemonnana. This jim beam spiked lemonade is shaken and poured over ice in a tall glass, with muddled mint and lemon verbena. Well at least it’s supposed to be. In my case, it was muddled first, and then the ingredients were dumped into a giant pitcher, so there was very little shaking and the only pouring was done by us into many little glasses.
What’s a lemonnana? It’s basically a mojito, but with jim beam and lemons instead of rum and limes. It’s tasty. It’s refreshing. And it didn’t taste very strong. I’m not sure if we had ordered individual lemonnanas they would have been individually stronger. But the pitcher wasn’t that strong at all. And this surprised me, because all of the drinks on this top 15 list have been super strong, so far. If you’re going to drink a lot of this or have enough people to share, it’s definitely a good value to get the pitcher. The bartender who mixed our drinks is super talented. And we smelled many tasty dishes while having drinks. I wanted to eat at Zahav before, but now that I’ve been in it and smelled everything, I can’t wait much longer!
