Start the Weekend with a Punch

by Stoves and Bros


Anyone who knows me, knows I am obsessed with punches. All a bar or lounge has to do is offer punch bowls and I freak out and have to go. Some of the best ones I have been to in New York are Cienfuegos and the Bourgeois Pig. While I was home I decided to make a festive one using pomegranate, cranberry, lemon juice to make a bright, tart, and sweet cocktail. 

The recipe is here: (note because it's a punch you don't have to use top shelf liquor for it to be tasty)

2 cups chilled pomegranate juice
1 cup chilled cranberry juice
8 ounces (1 cup) vodka
8 ounces (1 cup) Cointreau or other orange-flavored liqueur
1 cup chilled club soda
1/2 cup lemon juice (from 6 lemons)
1 cup sparkling wine
1/2 cup Simple Syrup
