USS Richmond Punch Cocktail Recipe

That November day in 1621, the Pilgrims—bless their grim, determined souls—found themselves sweating things out at the end of a very long, very thin supply line. That meant, among other things, no wine, no beer and not even any gin. (White Anglo-Saxon Protestants without gin? It doesn’t bear thinking about.) So what say we forget about celebrating 1621-style and take our next option. Abraham Lincoln made the holiday official in 1863. Butter “Nut” Craig Cocktail Recipe.

Increasingly, bartenders are incorporating them into cocktails. One such cocktail is the Butter “Nut” Craig by D.C. bartender, bar owner and distiller Todd Thrasher. It combines dark rum and orange liqueur with butternut squash, fresh lemon juice and aromatic bitters. At first glance, rum might seem to be the key element in this cocktail—after all, it’s used in the highest quantity. The Straight Up.

Pear & Pub Ale Party Punch Cocktail Recipe

His Pear & Pub Ale Party Punch calls on two spirits, two juices, a homemade syrup and some beer, so there’s a lot going on within. The punch begins with rye whiskey and dark rum. It’s a potent combo to be sure, but one with complementary flavors that work well together—rye’s natural spiciness merges with the rich dark rum to produce a boozy synergy. Orange and lemon juices provide a welcome vein of fresh citrus that runs through the cocktail, while cinnamon-pear syrup adds sweetness, complexity and spice. For the beer, Webb recommends a good English ale, like Lucky Town Pub Ale, which is brewed right in Jackson. While Webb’s recipe hits all the right notes, you can temper the ratios if the punch is too strong for your crowd. A Hibiscus & Aperol Pitcher Cocktail for Galentine's Day.

The large-format drink appears in her book, “The Craft Cocktail Party: Delicious Drinks for Every Occasion,” and it’s primed to serve a crowd. The punch begins with a lemon oleo saccharum, which sounds a lot more intimidating that it is to make. Essentially, you’re just muddling lemon peels with sugar and letting the combination sit. As the two ingredients mingle, the citrus oils leach into the sugar and you’re left with a rich, delicious syrup.

From there, Reiner employs dry gin, Aperol, St-Germain and a bevy of fresh juices—lemon, orange and grapefruit. Two-Hit Fig Punch Cocktail Recipe. Spiced Pumpkin Flip. What's Up, Doc Cocktail Recipe.
