Party like it's Purim

On Passover we have 4 cups of wine, but on Purim, we are often encouraged to drink even more. In fact, Rava in the Babylonian Talmud is quoted as saying, “One is obligated to drink on Purim until one doesn’t know the difference between ‘cursed be Haman’ and ‘blessed be Mordechai.’”

So basically Purim is a big party with costumes, community, treats and plenty to drink. Sounds like fun, right?! Here are a few festive Purim cocktails to get you in the party mood.
