Impressive Party Cocktail
Mason Dixon Line Punch
1 1/2 oz 42BELOW Vodka
1/2 oz Elijah Craig 18-Year-Old Single Barrel Bourbon
1/4 oz Benedictine
1 oz Fresh Pressed Pineapple Juice
3/4 oz Fresh Squeezed Lemon Juice
1/4 oz Fresh Pressed Apple Juice
1/4 oz Brown Sugar oleo-saccharum
1/2 oz Rooibos & Horopito Tea
1/2 oz Angostura® aromatic bitters & Fig syrup
Smoked Wood Chips
Party starter: increase portions and serve in a punch bowl. Use a block of ice instead of smaller cubes to chill, yet not dilute, the punch. Float fresh orange and pineapple wheels in your punch bowl. During Tales of The Cocktail, we used smoked cherry wood chips near the punch barrels. The wood chips added the lovely aroma given off by the smoked wood – enhancing the cocktail experience!
