Spiced Orange-Bourbon Punch Recipe
Move aside eggnog—there’s a new signature holiday drink gracing our Christmas party this year. One Test Kitchen professional said this Spiced Orange-Bourbon Punch is “a fresh take on the traditional flavors of Christmas.” This punch is ideal to serve for a crowd, so it’s a great option for a holiday dinner or cocktail party. The festive bright color will add a dollop of fun to your bar or serving table on any night, and we love the look of floating fresh fruit to add life to the party. Don’t let the lineup of spices turn you away; in this recipe, all the spices blend together beautifully and do not overpower the drink. Be sure to have some pre-sliced oranges nearby for guests to garnish their drinks. A few tips from the Test Kitchen: Use the freshest orange juice you can find, as it will pay off in this recipe, and don’t forget to add the carbonated ingredients right before serving to keep the bubbles fresh. Bourbon fans will love this light and fizzy drink. You can substitute ginger ale for the ginger beer, but make sure to use freshly squeezed orange juice to correctly balance all of the ingredients.
