One of the major symbols of Sukkot is the lulav and etrog. Join us to learn more about their symbolism and to make an etrog-inspired cocktail and an etrog liqueur! Molly from 18Doors and Sarah from ParTea will lead a virtual gathering as we dive into the themes of the holiday and relax with some refreshing cocktails. Read on to see ingredients and tools you’ll need to participate.
