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