City Style and Living Magazine gimlet cocktail recipe

Once favoured by the British Navy for preventing scurvy, this refreshing cocktail is simple to make. Although the original recipe calls for gin, vodka can be substituted as an alternative. Some recipes use only Rose’s lime cordial (or lime juice as it’s known in the US) for a citrus kick, but we like amped up flavour of fresh juice.

A distinctive hue makes these raspberries standout. Red raspberries or any other ripe, fresh fruit work equally well in this recipe.

Turkish Coffee Brownies

Turkish coffee is ubiquitous in Israel. This dessert has a caffeine kick that’ll keep your party guests awake so they can enjoy every last bit of the delicious food you prepared. The cardamom gives these brownies an exotic taste that you likely haven’t experienced in other desserts.

Catch-Up Chicken

I raised my kids on the principle that ketchup isn’t a solution; it’s an indication: if my children don’t like something, they shouldn’t add ketchup—they simply shouldn’t eat it in the first place. But this recipe is one that purposely highlights the ketchup, giving the chicken a sweet and tangy flavor reminiscent of what you’d get at a backyard cookout. This way you can give your kids a barbecue experience without the smoke and the drunk uncle.

City Style and Living Magazine challah Balaboosta by Einat Admony

What’s wonderful about challah is that it can be used in so many ways: to sanctify the Sabbath, of course, but just as important, to make French toast, grilled cheese, and croutons and as breading in meatballs. Maybe not the way God intended it, but I’m sure She understands. Israel is the land of milk and honey, and this challah has both. For those of you who want to stay away from milk, it’s fine to substitute water.
