Recipe: Sailor’s Punch
Will you be at Drinkhacker HQ tonight? Here’s what you’re drinking… while supplies last!
Adapted from this recipe at Serious Eats. The bay leaves are what sucked me in!
Update: This punch was a huge hit and was gone in about an hour. There’s no way it serves 40. Maybe 20. I would at least double the recipe for any sizable party.
2 bottles Bourbon (I used Tennessee whiskey)
12 oz. apple cider
6 oz. spiced syrup (recipe below)
8 oz. simple syrup
10 oz. lime juice
20 bay leaves (dry)
Combine all ingredients in a punch bowl. Garnish with apple, lemon, and lime slices. Serves 40.
6 oz. water
12 cinnamon sticks
12 allspice berries
Combine all ingredients, boil, then allow to cool. Strain. More like spiced water than syrup.
