Test Kitchen Notes

Warm, spiced and very boozy, Bumble Brown Punch has a light sweetness from the honey amber lager that combines with plenty of fall spices and dark rum to make for a cozy and comforting drink. Don't forget the apple slices--they maintain a faint crunch while soaking up lots of flavor ... and alcohol!
