Get-togethers are incomplete without a bowl of fruity punch. How about adding a perfect twist to the quintessential party drink with some good ol’ bourbon?
Here’s a quick recipe for a Backwoods Bourbon Punch that’s fresh in terms of its essence, quick in its method, and great to get you tipsy.
Mix your Backwoods Bourbon Punch
Take a cocktail shaker. Add 180 ml bourbon, 60 ml vermouth, 90 ml grapefruit juice, and 40 ml grenadine. Fill it with ice and keep shaking till the outside turns frosty. This should take you about 30 seconds or so. Take a few glasses. Fill them with ice and pour your cocktail. Garnish all of them with sweetened cherries and lemon twists.
Serve and enjoy!

This is clearly an arbitrary marketing ploy, especially when you consider that women comprise 37 percent of the whiskey drinkers in America today.
