Does bin Laden Read Magnificent Bastard?

Does bin Laden Read Magnificent Bastard?
While the New York Times's Maureen Dowd hilariously mocks Osama bin Laden's new-look beard, suggesting it's a fake one "left over from Woody Allen's Bananas," it's clear he's spending as much time refining his style as he is plotting the next terrorist attack. We're not crazy about the obviously Just For Men-enhanced look, but if a cave-dwelling jihadist cares about his appearance, shouldn't you, too?

Southside (MB-Bastardized)

  • 2 oz gin
  • 1 oz fresh lemon juice
  • 1 sugar cube (or half teaspoon simple sugar)
  • soda water (if desired)

Place the sugar cube at the bottom of a lowball glass, add the fresh lemon juice, and mash with the back of a spoon. Fill two-thirds with ice and the gin and stir for at least 30 seconds. Add soda water, if desired, and give a quick stir. Garnish with a lemon wedge.
