December means party time. Style your bar cart with your favorite alcohol, flowers and maybe even a mirror. Below is our styled cart just in time for the holidays and our favorite holiday punch, aptly named, Mr. Ginger.
Mr. Ginger Holiday Punch
Recipe serves 4-6
Fresh Ginger- 2 large stocks cut
1 cup of sugar
2 cups of water
1.5 cups of gin -adjust to make stronger or weaker
1.5 cups of sparkling water
3 cups of juice (mango, grapefruit or orange)
You will make a simple syrup, using the ginger, sugar and water. Cut chucks of fresh ginger and put in a medium sauce pan add sugar and water. Cook on low heat, once the sugar dissolves, chill for at least 30mins but longer if possible (up to 8 hours). The longer you chill the simple syrup the stronger the ginger flavor will be.
Strain ginger chucks from pan. And pour syrup in punch bowl.
Next add Gin, sparkling water and juice. Refrigerate for 2 hours and serve straight up or on the rocks
