Hanukkah Treats… Sufganiyots (!  (Jewish doughnuts)  Yum!  Why do we eat them?

 Jews eat greasy food on Chanukah (or Hanukkah). While some prefer latkes and others doughnuts (or “sufganiyot,” as they’re known in Hebrew), the underlying custom is the same: to eat foods fried in oil.

The old custom to eat foods on Chanukah that are fried in oil, as a remembrance of the miracle of the oil lasting for eight days. Here are those drinks recipes…

Gin & Juice

Combine 1 liter of gin with 8 cups of white cranberry juice, 2 cups of white grapejuice and ¼ cup Elderflower liqueur in a pitcher.  Serve over ice and garnish with fresh cranberries and a sprig of rosemary.

Tequila Fruit Punch

Combine 1 liter of Tequila, 4 cups pomegranate juice and ½ cup fresh lime juice in a pitcher.  Serve over ice and top with seltzer.  Garnish with pomegranate seeds and a slice of star fruit.

Spiced Rum Punch

Combine 3 cups spiced rum, 3 cups white grape juice, ¼ cup fresh lime juice,5 cups ginger ale, 1 cup Bordeaux maraschino cherries, undrained into large punch bowl and add an “ice glacier with lime wheels frozen into it¨

 Tips for the Ice(berg):  Bigger is better. If you have the means and opportunity, freeze water in a bowl only slightly smaller than your punch bowl so that you can have a huge chunk of ice ever-so-slowly melting (and diluting) your punch. If your freezer lacks the space to make the appropriate glacier, ice cubes should be made available to put into the glasses, not the punch bowl. Ice cubes in the bowl will melt extremely quickly, and well before the party is over you’ll be left with a wishy-washy punch that nobody will want to drink — and who can blame them? Conversely, don’t just chill the punch and serve it neat.  For added effect, freeze fruits like limes, apple slices or cranberries in it.  You can also add herbs like rosemary, basil or mint or sticks of cinnamon, star anise or cloves (even edible flowers).  I like to add some citrus juice to the ice as well.
