Today: The Only Bowl of Punch You'll Need This Holiday Season
Let's face it: you can't survive the holidays without a good drink. Chalk it up to the endless guests dropping in, or your Auntie Susan nagging you about how you fold your tea towels.
But the holiday season is all about goodwill, meaning your guests would appreciate a bit of what you're sipping. Treat your guests -- and yourself -- to this silver bullet, or Bulleit, of a recipe for Crimson Bulleit Punch. Its warm ruby color, champagne, and spice from ginger liqueur wlll make you and your guests warm (and drunk!) with holiday cheer. Follow Oui, Chef's advice and dazzle your guests with an ice ring for the punch bowl that's frozen with lime slices, fresh cranberries, or pomegranate arils. Or mix up a single serving, for yourself!
