Jallab - The Vine Mediterranean Cafe
The jallab at The Vine on South Grand is not for beginners. You may want to try a couple of other drinks in this article before attempting this one. The servers at the Vine will tell you this traditional Arab drink is an acquired taste, but the unique mix of ingredients makes it one worth trying.
At the base of this cold concoction is date juice, which is prune juice’s cooler, more socially acceptable cousin. If you can get on board with the strong date taste, you might also appreciate the almond slivers, raisins and pine nuts mixed in. Drink slowly and enjoy the many flavors and textures jallab offers. If this one’s not for you, The Vine offer a great variety of other tasty beverages, like fresh fruit smoothies and waters infused with rose syrup.
