Hanukkah celebrates the triumph of light over darkness, of purity over adulteration, of spirituality over materiality, and as we prepare to celebrate it, here are some ideas for a toast with your friends and loved ones to a Happy Hanukkah. Try your hand behind the bar and surprise your guests with some lovely sips to begin the celebration!

Manischewitz Sangria (Considering the kosher wine's notorious sweetness, this seems like a natural use for it.)

Ingredients: 3 parts Manischewitz, half a shot of brandy per serving, 2 parts pineapple-orange juice, 1 part lime juice, 1 part seltzer water.

How to: Cut up apple, grapes, limes, lemons, oranges and put them in punch bowl. Pour wine and juices on top.  Add seltzer shortly before serving.&nb
