When Passover rolls around next Monday night, serve up some fun cocktails
to go with the gefilte fish as a change from the same old wine year after year. Distillery No. 209 has unveiled the world's only kosher-for-Passover gin, aptly named No. 209 Kosher for Passover Gin. They've even thrown in some cocktail recipes to get you through the week.
The Seder Sour
created by Jordan Mackay. Besides being kosher for Passover, this cocktail incorporates several of the flavors and symbols of the Seder meal.
1.5 oz No. 209 Kosher-for-Passover Gin
.5 oz warmed honey
Dash of Kosher for Passover horseradish
1 oz Freshly squeezed lemon juice
Tiny pinch of kosher salt
Add all the ingredients into a mixing tin. Either shake or stir the contents without ice to make sure the honey dissolves into the solution. Add crushed ice, cover and shake vigorously for 15 seconds. Strain into a chilled martini glass, top with a dash of soda water, and garnish with a sprig of parsley.
