Kosher for Passover

Recommended Posts

First, I don't quite understand how any wine can be kosher for Passover with the yeast that is required for fermentation. Obviously there is some loophole for lovers of Concord grape juice.

But what about cocktails? Are spirits allowed? Ideally I'd like some sort of bitter cocktail. It's not an orthodox house, and they don't keep kosher normally, but I want to celebrate the spirit of Passover. Think more culturally than religiously Jewish.

For cocktails, how about rum as the spirit, plus bitter(s) of your choice? A tiny bit of horseradish, possibly, or saffron?

Thanks for the links. The Kosher-for-Passover 209 doesn't seem to be easy to find, even right before Passover.

I may try to see if the host is OK with non-kosher cocktails that reflect the meaning of passover: Sipping Seder

Alternatively, rum and Angostura would make a good sour, in the style of the Trinidad Sour.
