This isn't the first time that Carpenter has taken the Russian beer off of the menu: she also boycotted it during the 2008 Russian invasion of Georgia. In its place, she'll be adding the "Orange Revolution," a drink inspired by Ukraine's 2004 Orange Revolution. It's made from orange aquavit, orange blossom water, a splash of orange juice and a sugar rim. "It tastes like optimism," Carpenter said.
Recipes inspired by Russia, Ukraine and Georgia -- such as the Ukrainian borscht, the "Russian Bird's Nest" frisee salad and the Georgian eggplant caviar -- are among the cuisines featured on Domku's menu.
"I've got nothing against Russia the country or Russian people," Carpenter said, "but sometimes their leaders act like real [jerks]."
