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.
Don’t like coconut?
Here’s another blue Chanukah cocktail recipe without any coconut flavor
RECIPE: BLUE & WHITE CHANUKAH COCKTAIL
Ingredients Per Drink
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.
