Chanukah Cocktail
CAPTION.

CAPTION.

 

Just as many of us “drink green” on St. Patrick’s Day, you don’t have to be Jewish to enjoy a blue cocktail on the first night of Chanukah (December 12, 2017; the date varies each year according to the Hebrew calendar).

You can use any cocktail recipe with blue curaçao. Add a white accent and you have the colors of the Israeli flag.

This cocktail recipe*, from The Breakers in Palm Beach, is a riff on the Piña Colada, with orange flavor (from the curaçao) substituting for the pineapple juice.

Don’t like coconut?

Here’s another blue Chanukah cocktail recipe without any coconut flavor

RECIPE: BLUE & WHITE CHANUKAH COCKTAIL

Ingredients Per Drink

  • 2 ounces vodka
  • 2 ounces Malibu Rum (coconut or pineapple)
  • 2 ounces Coco Lopez
  • 1/4 ounce blue curaçao
  • Flaked or shredded coconut
  • Agave or honey
  • Ice
  •  
    Preparation

    1. PREPARE the rim of the glass. Set down to shallow dishes: one for the agave, one for the coconut. Dip the rim of the glass into the dish of agave; then twist in the dish of coconut.

    2. SHAKE the other ingredients with ice and strain into the glass.

    TIP: If you want to save calories, use coconut milk instead of Coco Lopez.

    *They didn’t intend it as a Chanukah cocktail, but as one matching the beautiful blue ocean around The Breakers. They call it the Coco Snowball.
