This floral, nectarous concoction is the perfect warm, comforting drink to envelop your senses when you need to be hugged from the inside out (AND it’s also delicious with the addition of your favorite spirit)! This mixture of ingredients is a not-so-subtle nod to both the the land of milk and honey (which, by the way, I believe ought to be a safe harbor for both Jews AND Palestinians alike) and the traditional foods consumed during the Jewish holiday of Shavuot, which we are currently observing until sundown tomorrow, May 18, 2021. During Shavuot, observing Jews traditionally eat dairy-based foods as well as recipes that incorporate honey.
Without going into detail about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, I would like to say that my heart breaks for the loss of innocent life on both sides. I’ve incorporated lavender into this recipe as a way to provide a modicum of comfort to those who make it. Think of it as a salve of sorts, one that can bridge a gap between people of all cultures and creeds, as food and drink have the unique ability to do. Let this recipe be a symbol of my hope for a workable, respectful two-state solution, because Jews and Palestinians alike deserve the right to self-determination and dignity.
