The ‘BIG GAME’ Cocktail Recipe Posted on February 5, 2016February 21, 2020 by Susan Farris The ‘BIG GAME’ Cocktail – concocted by Chris Robertson The Kings Punch The thing about the Super Bowl, or any intense event for that matter, is that you don’t want to have to keep getting up to make more cocktails for your guests. This is where the beauty of a punch comes in. 1) It does not have as much alcohol as a stiff drink so it’s less likely that someone will do something to embarrass themselves or you. 2) It is a self-serving bartender of sorts. Your guests take the ladle, pour themselves a cup and then compliment you on how good the drink is. Basically… It’s your best “win-win” scenario. Recipe: (20 people) 40 oz. Brandy (I prefer an applejack brandy for this, but a good handle of regular brandy will do too) 10 oz. Fresh lemon juice 10 oz. Simple syrup 10 oz. Ginger liqueur (I like King’s Ginger, but Canton will do as well) 20 oz. Apple cider Pour all ingredients into a nice serving bowl (or if you want to go with the BIG GAME theme, why not a giant water cooler?!) and then add some lemon peals and sliced pears… There you have it! A cocktail that is sure to impress and allow you to remain on the couch or at the grill for the game. You can even fudge some of the proportions to the taste that you like. If you would like it sweeter, add more sugar. If you would like it less sweet add more lemon. It’s really up to up to you. Enjoy… and GO TEAM!
