MAKE THIS: PERFECT AUTUMN PUNCH (COCKTAIL)

Friday, November 20, 2015

The punch I'm about to share with you is a real crowd-pleaser, but to be fair the last time I made it was for a crowd of one (me). But I enjoyed it enough for five people so that counts for something, right? I started craving the warm flavors of fall long before the season hit, so I knew I wanted this punch to be really bold and a little sweet. What resulted was a spicy, delicious punch that seems surprisingly bottomless when you're going at it alone. My suggestion: gather your favorite people and share it with them. Or don't. But whatever you do, make this recipe because it's damn good.

Ingredients:
- a few cinnamon sticks
- 1/2 tsp. all spice
- 1 tsp. nutmeg
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1 apple, sliced thin
- 2 cups water
- 3 bottles Dundee Honey Brown Lager
- 9 oz. rum (or more if you dare)

Directions:
1. Combine water, brown sugar, cinnamon sticks, allspice, nutmeg, and apple slices in a pot.
2. Stir and dissolve brown sugar over medium heat.
3. Bring the mixture to a boil, then turn heat to low and simmer for 5-10 minutes.
3. Add rum and Dundee Honey Brown Lager. Allow mixture to heat slightly.
4. Remove cinnamon sticks and serve. Make sure you get an apple slice or two in your glass, because by now they've soaked up lots of flavor and are crazy good. Oh, and no worries if your punch cools, it tastes great both warm and cold.
