Try A "Flying Grandma" Punch This New Years!

At our Open House tonight, close to 30 people were there, we had a Flying Grandma Punch among other things. This is really, really good!

Flying Grandma

Recipe from Mr. Boston Holiday Cocktails

Makes 10 to 12 drinks

• 18 ounces citrus vodka [ or 8 oz Idaho Huckleberry vodka and 10 oz Bombay Gin - Queen Victoria]

• 6 ounces Grand Marnier

• 9 ounces fresh grapefruit juice

• 60 mint leaves (about 10 sprigs)

• Ice mold or large block of ice (made decorative with grapefruit rind and mint leaves -in sparkling water)

• One 750 ml bottle Moscato d’Asti, chilled

• Grapefruit twists, for garnish

Combine the vodka, Grand Marnier, grapefruit juice and mint in a large pitcher. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.

Strain through a fine-mesh sieve into a punch bowl. Add the ice and Moscato D’Asti and stir thoroughly.

Ladle into chilled Champagne coupes, garnish each drink with a grapefruit twist and serve.

This is one awesome punch! Try it. Cheers!
