{friday cocktail: whiskey punch}

Whenever we have large groups of friends over, I always love to set beer, wine and cocktails out so that guests can simply serve themselves as they please.  While this is really simple with wine and beer, it can be a bit more difficult with cocktails since most are best when they are made to order.  That is why a punch is the perfect solution.  Our friends served a whiskey punch as the signature cocktail at their wedding and it was a huge hit.  You can see the original recipe over at Bourbon & Bleu right here.  I considered doing another DIY champagne cocktail bar, but a whiskey punch just seems a bit more laid back and fun for our birthday party (plus the punch still has an entire bottle of champagne in it).  The recipe serves 15 and I doubled it for our group of 16 and was more than enough to last us throughout the night.

  1. I'm a new follower! I found you via pinterest as I was swooning over your confetti art - it reminds me of Kate Spade's Twirl perfume.

    I look forward to your posts to come!
