This year, Rosh Hashanah (the Jewish New Year) will begin the evening of October 2nd, and end the evening of October 4th. There are a number of symbolic foods associated with the holiday, a few of which are incorporated in this inspired cocktail. Apples dipped in honey are a common delicacy at traditional Rosh Hashanah celebrations, signifying wishes for a sweet new year. Our creation, the Shofar So Good, is just one more sweet way to celebrate!
Shofar So Good
2 oz KOVAL Bourbon infused with dates and apples
1/2 oz KOVAL Chrysanthemum & Honey liqueur
1/4 oz grenadine or pomegranate liqueur
3/4 oz lemon juice
We infused our bourbon by pouring it in a large container over apple slices and chopped dates, and leaving it to soak up the flavor for about a week. However, the infusion time can be shortened or lengthened depending on desired taste.
Shake vigorously and strain into a cocktail glass, and add a thin slice apple slice to garnish.
