the_sipping_seder_plateAt Bon Appétit, we pride ourselves on being a safe space for Manischewitz kosher wine. Our editor in chief praises it. We’ve extolled it for its “sweetness, the full body, the allover oomph” that “allows it to go head to head with [Passover's] truly ridiculous pairings, like borscht and chicken liver.” But despite our love, the world is not always kind to this, um, bold beverage; some are so cruel as to group it in the same category as other Passover plagues, such as locusts and diseased livestock.

To be fair, perhaps all these haters need is a little gateway drink. For this we offer: the Oy Vey Iz Kir cocktail from Shalom Japan, a Brooklyn restaurant whose name tells you most of what you need to know.
