A Sip To Send You Into 2020

The Connoisseur Cup Punch at Punch Bowl Social is as pretty as it is potent.

522 Congress Ave

The most important accessory you'll pair with your New Year's Eve party dress is a celebratory cocktail. We chatted with the pouring pros at Punch Bowl Social who gave us a sip recipe that will ring your bell. Swing by their just-opened location downtown or make this little concoction at home for your festive friends. 

Connoisseur Cup Punch

2 cups Breckenridge Gin
1/2 cup Dolin Blanc Vermouth (do not substitute another dry vermouth, but if necessary use Lillet Blanc)
2 cups Teakoe’s Kodiak Mountain Mint Tea (prepared from tea bags)
1 cup lavender syrup*
1 cup fresh lemon juice (fresh squeezed the day punch is made)

For the lavender syrup, boil the desired amount of water, add 1 cup dried lavender flowers to every liter of boiled water and let steep for 1 hour. Strain flowers from water. For every cup of lavender water, stir in 1 cup sugar until it is dissolved. Combine all ingredients, stir and serve chilled over ice with a lemon slice and thyme sprig. Serves eight people with two full servings each. Cheers!
