Big (the Bar) Unveils Hanukkah Cocktail


Barman Brian Felley, at the very tiny Big (761 Post Street), has just unveiled a new special cocktail for Hanukkah called the Hebrew International ($12). It combines an international set of ingredients (Wild Turkey bourbon, Xtabentun liqueur from the Yucatan, Slivovitz plum brandy from Yugoslavia, Kummel from Holland, Chinese five-spice bitters, muddled apple, lime and garnished with cumin and salt-covered diced apple), and we suppose it’s the cumin that’s meant to evoke Israel or the Middle East. It will be available through December 16, or the end of Hanukkah.
