Just when we thought we could take it easy on the cocktails after the holidays, the NFL playoffs are in sight. I know what will be monopolizing our TV over the next month and change. And there will most likely be a large supply of beer in the fridge as well.
I love a brewski, but sometimes I want to mix it up. And I kind of like the sound of this Bourbon Punch from InStyle Magazine.
Containing some of my favorite winter flavors - tea, cranberry, and bourbon, I'm pretty sure this will create the balance that I'm looking for.
12 chamomile tea bags
1 package of fresh raspberries, plus more for garnish
1 bottle of bourbon (750ml)
2 liters cranberry juice
12 Tbsp sugar
3/4 cup fresh lemon juice
Orange slices, for garnish
Steep tea bags in 3 cups of hot water. Mash berries. Combine all ingredients and serve over ice in a collins glass. Garnish with the oranges and extra raspberries.
