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.

This cocktail recipe* (photo #1), from The Breakers in Palm Beach, is a riff on the Piña Colada, with orange flavor (from the curaçao) substituting for the pineapple juice.

Don’t like coconut?

Here’s another blue Chanukah cocktail recipe without any coconut flavor.

Want something elegant? Pour blue curaçao into a champagne flute, add sparkling wine. You can create a rim with sparkling sugar.

RECIPE: BLUE & WHITE CHANUKAH COCKTAIL

Ingredients Per Drink

  • 2 ounces vodka
  • 2 ounces Malibu Rum (coconut or pineapple)
  • 2 ounces Coco Lopez
  • 1/4 ounce blue curaçao
  • Flaked or shredded coconut
  • Agave or honey
  • Ice
  •  
    Preparation

    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.
