Hanukkah is an eight day Jewish celebration of the triumph of good over evil and of light. Each day a single flame is lit in the Menorah (eight part candlestick) until all of the candles are lit. Often accompanied by playing a traditional game with a wooden dreidel, here is a recipe for a more grown up dreidel accompaniment for adults!
- 1 ½ oz bourbon
- 3 oz fresh mandarin orange juice
- 8 fresh mint leaves
Muddle mint in the bottom of a shaker glass. Add bourbon, orange juice, and a cup of ice. Shake well. Strain into a cocktail glass garnish with a sprig of mint.
