This Sunday night, October 2nd, the Jewish calendar will hit 5777. Now, you can be sure that on December 31st, we’ll be toasting to 2017 with a glass of something good. Well, our Erev Rosh Hashanah gathering deserves something equally as festive to mark the passing of time, so we’ve come up with a fitting cocktail to go along with all the apples we'll dip in honey to signify a sweet new year.
Start with a delicious liqueur made from, yes, apples. Harvest Spirits' Cornelius Applejack uses 60 pounds of fresh apples in each bottle, in fact. Mix it with Kas Krupnikas Honey Liqueur, a sweet honey liqueur spiced with vanilla, cinnamon and cardamom. Stir with ice and garnish with fresh mint leaves and a few apple slices. Huzzah!
The Apples & Honey Cocktail Kit is the perfect way to kick off your holiday meal or an excellent gift for someone who’s nice enough (again) to host.
Here’s to a year filled with only good things – happiness, health, peace. And a good cocktail.
