How to Make Holiday Punch -

by NeuronasVivas Erick Castro, the general manager of Rickhouse Bar in San Francisco, shows how to make a great bowl of holiday punch by demonstrating the things that people do wrong, including using cheap ice (don't water it down!) and reaching for poor-quality liqueurs (they're loaded with high-fructose corn syrup and artificial flavors!). Do it right: Use fresh juices and good (but not i too /i good) liqueurs; freeze a block of ice and chill your spirits in advance; and mix up the punch right before your guests arrive, adding the citrus and sparkling ingredients last for the best flavor and effervescence.
