Based on the Molotov Cocktail
, the Mozoltov cocktail is the Jewish version.
It follows the same basic principles as a molotov, a crude homemade petrol bomb, but with a Jewish element of some sort. This could mean perhaps using a He'Brew beer bottle, filling the bottle with olive oil (in reference to the origin of Hanukkah), lighting it with a candelabra, or even simply being thrown by a Jewish person. None of this is completely necessary however, and the phrase could easily be used simply based on the intent of the thrower.Mozoltov
(or Mazel tov) is a Hebrew
(or Yiddish) usually meaning "good luck!" or "congratualtions!". This adds almost an ironic effect, as generally those struck by a Mozoltov cocktail would be considered to be having bad luck.
Generally, upon throwing the mozoltov cocktail, it is traditional to yell out "Mozoltov!"
