Auld Lang Syne

There’s no better way to welcome the New Year than with a group of friends and a festive punch!  The “Alliance Club” combines the delicate Elderflower notes of St-Germain liqueur with muddled Lemons, woodsy Genever Dutch Gin and toasty Cognac.  Add a pretty ice ring and you’re ready to ring in the New Year!

Alliance Club Punch

1 Bottle (750 ml) Genever
1/3 Bottle (250 ml) Cognac or Brandy
8 oz St-Germain
4 Lemons
1 Cup Sugar

First, thinly peel the lemons and muddle the peels in the sugar to extract the lemon oils. Let this sit for an hour, then remove the peels, squeezing out as much sugar as possible. Juice the lemons, combining about 8 oz of fresh juice with the sugar, then muddle again to combine. Pour the sweetened lemon juice along with the Genever, Brandy, and St-Germain into a punch bowl. Add two quarts of cold water and top the bowl off with ice. Invite your guests to serve themselves from the communal bowl.


As always, enjoy responsibly and have a Happy New Year!
