The Hallelujah

A palate-twister from the isthmus of Panama
1 oz Cognac (Babylonian Grape Brandy)
1 c Ice (Ice of the crest of Mount Sinai (crushed))
4 dr Lime juice (Lemon from the Desert of Sin)
1 12 oz Sweet vermouth (Gomorrah and Sodom Vermouth)
12 oz Añejo rum (Rum aged in Noah's Ark (rye can also be used))
12 oz Grenadine (Add Cain's Syrup from the Garden of Eden)
You then give it a Hebrew shake and pop a cherry on top. Say Hallelujah after drinking.
Bilgay apparently sent out postcards listing the ingredients as shown above....many thousands went out, and a million dollar lawsuit was instituted.
