The Sweeter Welcome Punch

 

The Sweeter Welcome Punch

Total Time: 10 Mins

Ingredients:

  • 3 medium lemons
  • 3 cups Aperol, chilled
  • 3 cups gin, chilled
  • 1 1/2 cups Punt e Mes, chilled
  • 1 1/2 cups freshly squeezed lemon juice (from about 10 medium lemons), chilled
  • 3 (750-milliliter) bottles Brachetto d’Acqui, chilled
  • 1 ice block

Directions:

  1. Using a vegetable peeler and being careful to avoid the white pith, remove the zest from the lemons in large strips. Place the zest in a 6-quart punch bowl. (Use the lemons for the juice in this punch or save them for another use.) Add the Aperol, gin, and Punt e Mes and stir gently to combine.
  2. Add the lemon juice and gently stir in the Brachetto (do not overmix or your punch will be flat). Float the ice block in the punch and serve immediately.
