Hump Day Happy Hour

This Hanukkah-Themed Cocktail Will Keep Your Oil Burning

Tonight marks the first night of Hanukkah, the gift-giving holiday that celebrates the rededication of the Holy Temple, the miracle behind some undying oil and the invention of the potato latke. Wash down the golden-fried goodies with a glass of “The Golden Boy,” created for Glo by award-winning chef Jose Andres.

Sparkling Cava and a special pinch of gold dust guarantee this cocktail will shine all eight nights of the Festival of Lights. We suggest using the drink to rehydrate between intense games of family dreidel and to recover from obligatory conversations with relatives.

And if the holiday season has burned not only the Hanukkah candles but also your bank account, drink a few glasses of “The Golden Boy” when you check your next bank statement.

“The Golden Boy “


¾ oz. Amontillado Napoleon Hidalgo (sherry)

½ oz. Simple syrup

Dash of Angostura bitters

Pinch of gold dust*

5 oz. Cava Pares Balta Brut

Lemon twist

*Edible gold dust is available at many baking supply stores.


Add the first four ingredients to a martini glass and lightly stir. Pour the Cava into the glass. Garnish with the lemon twist.

Jose Andres is the award-winning chef and owner of The Bazaar by Jose Andres, located in Los Angeles, as well as several other venues associated with his Think Food Group.

  • Nothing like a holiday cocktail to make the season merrier!
