I've been assigned the task to bring some punch for a coworker's retirement party at the office.
Who has a great "recipe" for a good punch...perhaps something different than the traditional Hawaiian Punch, 7Up and sherbet? I want something different that will impress...but also trust you guys to have tried the combination. Anyone can look up a recipe online, but who knows how it will taste. Being a member on B&B is much like having a team of kitchen consultants. :w00t:
No rush, it's not until next Wednesday. :001_tongu

Sorry that I missed this. Here's one for Chatham Artillery Punch. I first made this about thirty years ago from a recipe that I got out of an old Esquire cocktail recipe book. I don't have the book handy right now, but I found one on the web that is in the right neighborhood:
Chatham Artillery Punch
Makes 25 servings
2 ounces of green tea leaves
4 large lemons
1/2 pound turbinado or light brown sugar
1 quart dark rum
1 quart brandy
1 quart rye or bourbon whiskey
3 bottles champagne
1. Soak the tea leaves 8 hours or overnight in a quart of cold water. Strain the liquid from the leaves into a large container that will hold all the spirits (use wooden, porcelain, or glass; do not use plastic or metal). Juice 3 lemons through a strainer into the tea and add the sugar, stirring until it is dissolved.
2. Stir in the rum, brandy, and whiskey, cover, and let stand at room temperature for at least 8 hours or for up to a week. Itís pretty well indestructible at this point.
3. When ready to serve the punch, thinly slice 1 lemon. To serve the punch, allow 6 cups of the base for every bottle of champagne. First pour the brew over an ice ring or large block of ice in a punch bowl. Add the sliced lemon and swirl in the champagne, being careful not to disturb its effervescence. Serve with caution.
