Back to the Kitchen: The Menorah Martini

Print This Post Print This Post


This weekend marks the beginning of the Jewish holiday, Hanukkah, where many families invite relatives and friends over to light the menorah, sing songs, play dreidel, exchange gifts, eat latkes and other traditional food, and maybe indulge in a special cocktail.

Manischewitz is a really sweet wine traditionally used for Passover ceremonies but most wine snobs turn their noses at. This fruity grape juice tasting beverage is however perfect for a Menorah Martini! This sweet and sour cocktail is a fun way to celebrate the season, be with friends and family as you celebrate the Festival Of Lights! Mazel Tov!

Menorah Martini

1 part raspberry Stoli vodka

1/2 part triple sec

1/2 part pear schnapps

2 parts Manischewitz Concord-grape wine

1 part fresh sour mix

1 part Sprite

Lemon twists, to garnish

Shake the vodka, triple sec, schnapps, Manischewitz and fresh sour in a cocktail shaker with ice. Pour into a martini glass.

Top with Sprite and garnish with a lemon twist.
