“Punches are so old world and rarely enjoyed these days,” says Bryan. “We enjoy trying out old traditions and seeing if they can be revived and reinvented.” Their special Carnival Supper concoction is made of Champagne, St. Germain, and orange bitters. The frozen grapes give a nod to the Bacchus theme and keep the punch cold throughout the night.
