Summer – Sunset Punch

Oh the heat, the blinding sun, the oppressive air! You simply can’t survive this wickedness without proper refreshment. Let us introduce you to the poetic-sounding Sunset Punch. You’ll need 8 ounces of bourbon, 8 ounces of vermouth, ½ cup of fresh lemon juice, ¼ cup of water, ¼ cup of sugar and 12 ounces of cool ginger beer. First, pour sugar into that cup of water and mix until it’s all dissolved. Then take a punch bowl and combine that with the rest of the ingredients and add a few lemon slices for garnish. Serve it over ice and you’ve got yourself a nice little bowl of fun that’s just waiting for a poolside party to happen.
