sukkot spirits

sukkot is coming! this year, be sure to squeeze everything out of this fruitful holiday.  i'm talking about the etrog (citron) of course. this ancient middle eastern fruit actually flaunts lots of flavor.  haven't had your first taste? bartenura is one of the only brands offering an etrog liqueur. its flavor is extremely sweet and tart (face squinch!) so sip slowly.  don't forget to think about why this fruit is so fortunate: it has both good taste and good smell, symbolizing jews that have both torah and good deeds (what we strive for). so don't forget to bless your etrog, and if you're lucky, drink it too!
