REGGAE ROSH COCKTAIL

A Sweet Cocktail for the New Year
Food & Drink | Mixers


Cocktail, Rosh Hashanah, Apple & Rum

As Rosh Hashanah approaches it's time to prepare for a New Year. One of the things I love about living in a multi cultural household is that we get more than one chance to start the year new and fresh. It's also nice to have a few extra holidays to make up fun cocktails like this one.

The Rosh Hashanah menu includes many sweet foods representing the wish for a sweet new year. The most symbolic foods are the apple dipped in honey, thus I made an apple based cocktail. To add sweetness to the apple I choose to mix it with rum which is made of sugar cane. Since the rum and ginger ale floater are from Jamaica, this cocktail has a hint of reggae vibe. 

(Rum drinks are also favorites of sailors & pirates. So remember this cocktail the next time you are practicing your knots.)

So get your mixer ready for Wednesday night and Have a Sweet New Year!
