Cocktail Inspired Mishloach Manot

Sending Mishloach Manot to friends and family is an obligation on Purim, but coming up with new ideas for your Mishloach Manot each year can be difficult. We all want to be creative and 'wow' our friends and family, but there are so many great ideas out there and narrowing it down to just one can be hard.  On Purim, there is an obligation to drink alcohol and cocktail inspired Mishloach Manot is a creative way to connect the obligation of drinking alcohol with Mishloach Manot. These three Purim inspired cocktails can easily be turned into Mishloach Manot using the packing instructions below and adding the cocktail ingredients.

Shushan Bullet

 A Mexican “Sombrero” can be used as container for the Shushan Bullet ingredients. You can use straws as filler and include 6 color-coordinated paper napkins and 6 assorted clear or multi-colored 2-oz plastic shot glasses.

Milk and Cookies Cocktail

Put the ingredients for the (Not-Your-Kids’) Milk and Cookies cocktails into large brown paper lunch sack with bright tissue to use as filler. You can add a can opener, disposable swizzle sticks (short size), 6 bright paper napkins, 6 assorted clear or multi-colored 2-oz. plastic shot glasses.

Sweet n Sour Ice Tea

For the Sweet 'N' Sour Iced Tea Shooters use a large Chinese-style paper or plastic take-out box packed with styrofoam “peanuts” or “noodles” to as a filler. Add 3 sets of chopsticks to use as stirrers, 6 color-coordinated paper napkins to match take-out container, and 6 assorted clear or multi-colored 2-oz. plastic shot glasses to match.
