Punches are a great way to serve a crowd while still having the time to enjoy your own party. This punch is based loosely on a French 75 cocktail and makes use of the terrific new Tattersall Pommeau apple brandy. The Pommeau is very apple forward, and provides a deep flavor reminiscent of cider. The orange liqueur, lemon, and sparkling wine add a bright effervescence.
- 6 oz apple brandy (we used Tattersall Pommeau)
- 1 ½ oz orange liqueur (we used Tattersall Orange Crema)
- 3 oz fresh lemon juice
- 1 oz rich simple syrup (2 parts sugar, 1 part water)
- 1 bottle dry sparkling wine (we used Bechtold Cremant d'Alsace)
In order, combine all ingredients in a large punch bowl. Stir gently to combine. Serves 6-8 people.
St. Genevieve is a "buvette," or French bar where drinks and refreshments are sold. The focus is on Champagne and other French sparkling wines, along with Parisian small plates, mains, and pastries.
