Pawleys Rum Punch
A sprinkling of nutmeg across the top of this easily batched cocktail compliments the molasses-like flavor of two rums softened with pineapple, orange, and cranberry juices.
Fish House Punch
Dark rum and cognac warm up this peach punch created in the 18th century.
This flavorful punch balances the bite of sherry and corn whiskey with nutty homemade walnut orgeat syrup and fresh citrus juice.
Throughout the Caribbean, rum punches flecked with nutmeg have been served steadily since the colonial era.
Sweet Gin Symphony
A lively gin-based punch that captures complex seasonal flavors with layers of citrus, mint, and anise, thanks to an absinthe rinse sprayed in each glass before serving.
Rosé All Day
A papaya shrub, easily made weeks in advance, adds earthy sweet-and-sour notes to this playful prosecco sparkler.
The Last Word
Equal parts gin, chartreuse, maraschino liqueur, and fresh lime juice, this is an old-fashioned cocktail that feels awfully modern. Its equally-portioned ingredients make for easy scaling: mix up a triple or quadruple batch to serve several drinkers at once. Get the recipe for The Last Word »
