Kiddush over liquor


People often use liquor for Kiddush on Shabbat day. One question arises, though: What do we do with the minimum volume measures which we have discussed?

The ideal is for the person reciting Kiddush to use a cup which holds a minimum of 3.8 ounces, and to drink a cheekful (about two ounces) in one or two swallows. If that is impossible, and one only has liquor available for Kiddush, then one should still use a cup holding a minimum of 3.8 ounces in the cup, and combine the drinking of all who hear kiddush, toward the total two ounces.

(Mishneh Berurah 272:30)

Have a great day,
