A New Spin for Your Chanukah Party

Wanna make this year’s dreidel games a little more interesting (without adding vodka?*)

Don your Poker Yarmulke and bet some gelt for some No Limit Texas Dreidel!

The objective is for each player to create the best dreidel “hand” by combining dreidel spins. You will combine dreidel “spins” in your shaker, which only you will see, with other Community Spins, which will be seen by all players. The game is an entertaining adult party game and is family fun for everyone ages 9 to 99.

Do you think any parents would object if I taught the Shalom School kindergarteners how to put on a good poker face while bluffing for Skittles?

*Recipe for “Yenta’s Spinning Dreidels”:

In a cocktail shaker, combine the following with ice:

4 oz. premium vodka
4 oz. Blue Curacao liqueur
2 oz. lime juice

Shake and serve in chilled martini glasses – though when the Nun and Shin start to meld into one, you’ve had enough.
