In the JNF Kitchen: Melon and honey vodka cocktail
The above picture is the perfect example of the pioneer spirit and tenacious creativity found in the region. What residents lack in natural resources they make up for in ingenious solutions, such as growing melons from above when they can't grow them from the inhospitable soil below. All year round, the tastiest peppers, artichokes, melons, and cucumbers come out of the Central Arava.
This drink is an homage to the soul that is Israel's Arava. L'Chaim!
