If you try one new punch recipe this year, this is the one! This recipe has it all. Sweet, salty, citrus, and a cherry on top.
There are two secrets to the success of this punch. The salted honey simple syrup, and the liqueur-soaked cherries. Both add something special that make this recipe unique.
This party punch recipe gives a modern twist to a classic cocktail, and serves a crowd.
The salted honey simple syrup give this punch an amazing flavor. It’s so interesting and delicious, and complements the other flavors so well.
You can substitute bourbon in this punch recipe if you like.
That’s right, it’s just as tasty using bourbon instead of whiskey. You may get a slightly sweeter flavor depending on the bourbon you use.
You can easily adjust the flavor of this punch by adding a full 2-liter bottle of ginger ale.
This will also increase the amount of punch you have in case you are trying to stretch it for a larger crowd.
Garnish your drink with sweetened dried lemon slices.
I find these at Trader Joe’s. You can also just use fresh sliced lemons to garnish. I like to float sliced lemons and limes in the punch bowl as a hint of what flavors are inside.
Freeze sliced lemons and limes in over sized ice cubes and add to the punch to keep it chilled.
