Holiday Road Punch Recipe

Holiday Road Punch
Sample provided.

The holiday season is upon us, which means that it’s time for festive food and drinks! I’m a big fan of special holiday beverages; I love drinking a hot chocolate while I gaze at Christmas lights, or enjoying some eggnog as I trim the tree. A good punch recipe is another holiday season staple – especially at parties – and I love trying creative new spins on an old classic, so I love this two-part recipe featuring Everclear! The first step is infusing a special liqueur, which you can then use in Holiday Road Punch, and/or bottle up the liqueur with a ribbon to give as a thoughtful hostess gift. I haven’t had Everclear in a long time, so I’m looking forward to trying some mixology with it!
