Bernie Madoff cocktail hits NYC bar
Bernard Madoff hasnt just inspired ex-investors to head to the bar; hes inspired one of the citys top mixologists to whip up a new cocktail: The Madoff 150.
This past Saturday night at the Hudson River Cafe, a Madoff scam victim asked mixologist Alex Ott to concoct something powerful to ease his pain, Ott said. Otts solution? The Madoff 150 ($5) named for the number of years Madoff will spend behind bars made of Grand Marnier, tequila, crushed pineapple, cilantro, ginger and lime juice.
One will forget his losses after imbibing this cocktail, Ott said.
