Relax, that Labor Day hangover of yours didn’t last all the way into December. It’s a different kind of new year we’re celebrating – the Jewish new year to be exact. And, just like most every other Jewish holiday, there is always food and drink in the mix!
To ring in the start of a new Hebrew calendar year, Jewish tradition has it that we eat apples dipped with honey, symbolic of the sweet year ahead.
I’m looking to change the game at this year’s celebratory dinner with a pair of cocktails riding on the apples and honey theme.
I think an Appletini Recipe will start us in the right direction…
For me personally, I like to play with the garnish a bit more on this drink than a simple apple wedge. I think Stirring’s makes a real nice Apple Martini rimmer that is glamorous, yet effortless.
I’ve got the tart apple component down, and now I just need a sweet cocktail recipe calling for honey to complement this drink. Leave me your favorite recipe that utilizes honey in the comments section. If I think your recipe is all “the bees knees,” I’ll later come back and feature it in this post!
