Who spiked the Chanukah donuts?


Is it me, or do these sufganiyot taste funny?

Alcohol importers in Israel have decided to market their vodka in an original way: By hiring a pastry chef who is also a bartender to create vodka-soaked donuts ahead of the holiday of Hanukkah.

“Adults await sufganiyot (Hanukkah donuts) no less than children do,” a source from the company that imports “Hortiza”, the vodka to be infused into the donuts, said.

“Therefore,” he added, “we have decided to launch a line of donuts suitable for adults and party-goers.”

A 100 gram donut, sold at the price of NIS 4.5 (about $1.18), contains 90 milliliters of vodka diluted with jam.

The vodka contains 35% alcohol, and the alcohol content of each donut is equal to that of a bottle of beer.
