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!
If you’re not so smitten with the nippy fall and the gloomy winter months, the oh-so-comforting seasonal cider can provide a welcome respite.
Perhaps it’s fitting that a cocktail be named after Scotland’s national poet – Robert Burns. After all, Scotch is arguably the country’s most significant contribution to the world. The drink is said to have originated during the early part of 20th century at the famed Waldorf Bar on New York’s 5th Avenue.
