Alliteration at its Tastiest.
Bringing a more refined execution to punch mixology, this recipe is written for only one serving. Look below the initial recipe to see how you can easily make a larger batch for entertaining with around 25 servings.
Pear Perfect Punch
1 oz. Pear Anise Liqueur
1 oz. Aged rum
¾ oz. Lime juice
1 oz. Champagne
Pear slice (optional)
- Combine Pear Anise Liqueur, rum and lime juice in a shaker full of ice.
- Shake vigorously.
- Strain into a highball glass full of ice.
- Top off with champagne.
- Garnish with nutmeg and a pear slice.
As written, this recipe is for only one drink. But if you’re hoping to make this for an entire party, here’s how to make it for 25 servings:
1 bottle (750 mL) Pear Anise Liqueur
1 bottle (750 mL) Aged rum
19 oz. Lime juice
1 bottle (750 mL) Champagne
25 oz. Filtered water
Blend all but champagne in a gallon jar and refrigerate overnight. You’ll notice water is added to this recipe. This creates the same dilution as when you shake the individual serving with ice. When ready to serve, pour into a punch bowl over ice and add champagne and garnish to each drink.
If you want a large block of ice to keep it chilled without diluting too much, you can simply freeze water in a bread pan or another large container the night before.
