About this recipe: After making many, many batches of matzo balls for my friends, I perfected the recipe and am sharing it here. They're always a welcome treat.

  1. Beat the eggs in a mixing bowl until thick and light in colour. Combine the the eggs with the matzo meal, vegetable oil, 1 tablespoon chicken stock, vodka, salt, pepper, basil and soda water in a large bowl, and stir until well blended. Cover and refrigerate 1 to 2 hours.
  2. Pour the remaining chicken stock into a large pot and bring to the boil over medium high heat.
  3. Meanwhile, form walnut-sized balls using the chilled matzo mixture. Place the balls in the chicken stock, reduce heat to medium and simmer until matzo balls are cooked through, 45 to 60 minutes.
