Basis of a Pharisee is strong, freshly brewed coffee, sweetened with sugar cubes and mixed with a good shot (about 4 cl) of brown rum (Jamaican rum or Jamaican blend with 54% vol.), Then whipped cream is added over it. A funny fact as I think, that shows peoples priorities is, that in 1981, the District Court of Flensburg has ruled in the so-called „Pharisee dispute“ that 2 cl of rum were not sufficient for a Pharisee. So be sure to be spiced up anytime you will enjoy this liquid. The Pharisee is usually not stirred, but drunk through the cream. Those who do not stick to it and still stir the drink can be asked to spend a local round. It is often served in a special Pharisee place setting, a tall cup-like cup with saucer.
