whiskey face punch

Hey, midweek big batch cocktail! 

I’m a wino through and through, but now that the sun is shining during happy hour, I’ve been craving fresh, cold drinks that can keep it light on the booze without sacrificing a solid punch to the tastebuds. 

Enter our Whiskey Face Punch. 

It’s the only kick in the pie hole that won’t leave you in tears. This recipe makes a nice batch of the cocktail, so it’s prefect for those afternoons you’re playing host to a friendly gathering at your home. Cheers!

 

serves 6-8

1/4 c sugar

1/4 c water

1/2 c meyer lemon juice (or a mix of regular + meyer)

1 1/2 c orange juice

2 c bourbon whiskey

2 c club soda

lemon slices for garnishing

 

Mixed together sugar and water and heat in the microwave for 2 minutes. Place in the fridge until completely cooled. In a large pitcher or bowl, pour in the simple syrup. 

Squeeze 2 lemons for 1/2 cup of juice. I like to use a mix of Meyer lemon and regular lemon. 

Add lemon juice to pitcher and then orange juice. 

Add in whiskey. Lastly, pour in cold club soda. 

Mix thoroughly. 

Serve over crushed ice with a thick slice of lemon. Save the remaining mixture in a sealable bottle.
