Something healthy? (Just kidding)
No, something fun to drink.
Now you can add a few liquid delights to the Festival of Lights -- Chanukah Cocktails.
I recently developed some adult drinks for my column in the j. weekly. These were featured today in a post on The Daily Meal, complete with photos and background information on how I developed the recipes. The Daily Meal also features a Chanukah mocktail recipe (see below).
|The Chanukah Gift|
The Sufganiyot (which refers to the Israeli and now American custom of having jelly doughnuts as a Chanukah celeberatory treat), has a non-alcoholic version on the Daily Meal site.
Check the j. weekly or Daily Meal links for the recipes. Here is the Sufganiyot Mocktail recipe.
|All the fun, none of the booze|
Makes 1 Drink
Use half lemon-lime soda and half plain seltzer for a less sweet version, or try with 4 oz. of lemon-flavored seltzer.
1 tsp. raspberry flavored syrup such as Torani
1/2 Tbs. vanilla flavored syrup such as Torani
4 oz. lemon-lime soda, chilled
Moisten rim of champagne flute with lemon. Dip into powdered sugar. Add raspberry and vanilla syrups. Carefully pour in soda. Stir gently.
To make a mocktail (or kid-friendly) version of the very cute and tasty Chocolate Egg Cream Shot, substitute Torani (or similar) chocolate-flavored sugar syrup for the chocolate liqueur in the recipe.
