Bourbon Fruit Tea Punch via Bon Appétit [Drink]

May 30th, 2020 Comments off
I love punches and sometimes make a Dickens Gin Punch at Christmastime. The inclusion of my favorite tipple, bourbon, in this one makes me want to try it all the more. — Douglas
This recipe is from Vivek Surti of Tailor in Nashville, No. 7 on our Hot Ten list for 2019. His spiked fruit tea is intentionally not too boozy, but you can also leave the bourbon out. “When I was growing up here,” the Nashville native says, “restaurants had three drinks: water, sweet tea, and fruit tea. Our welcome cocktail is an homage to the latter, as well as to punch’s Indian heritage. (Punch comes from the Hindi word paanch, which means ‘five’ since originally there were only five ingredients.) I love fruit tea and wanted to bring it back—with bourbon.”

Blueberry-Thyme Gin Smash from Tide and Thyme



At any rate, I’m looking forward to sunny days at the beach and sandbar sooner rather than later. And this cocktail is perfect for warmer weather. A simple syrup is made with fresh blueberries, fresh thyme, sugar and water. Then the blueberry concoction is mixed with gin, St. Germain, and club soda for a little bubbly flair.

It’s a wonderful combination of sweetness from the blueberries, herb notes from the elderflower liquor and the fresh thyme, and a crispness from the gin and twist of lemon. Very light and refreshing.Garnished with a few fresh berries and a sprig of thyme – it doesn’t get any prettier!
