Back-to-School with KosherKocktails
By Robin Tim Weis
If the flurry of back to school is grinding you down already, Fig Tree & Vine has a remedy to your parental blues. Take back your sanity one juice box at a time!
Tired of those goofy organic juice boxes returning home unopened? Why not turn the tables? With our Back-to-School cocktail recipe, you can transform your child’s juice box into an artisanal cocktail worthy of all the back-to-school troubles.
One 4 oz juice box (we used Apple & Eve’s ‘Ernie’s Berry’ flavor)
2 oz vodka
1.5 oz ginger beer
0.3 oz apple cider vinegar
0.5 oz Simple Syrup
Muddle the blackberries with your apple cider vinegar at the base of a cocktail shaker. Add the contents of the juice box (taking care not to squirt yourself in the eye), Simple Syrup, ginger beer, and vodka to your cocktail shaker and fill halfway with ice. Shake vigorously for 10 seconds and strain into a highball glass filled with ice.
