Courvoisier Punch

4 Jan

One of the joys of Christmas is the availability of giftsets, glasses etc which if you’re a drinker and collector like me is the perfect chance to fulfill both loves.

One thing I picked up this year were some Courvoisier glasses which looked like they’d be nice to drink from and this evening seemed the perfect time to try them out.

The recipe I chose to dive in with is a Courvoisier Punch and the single serving proportions are:

  • 50ml Courvoisier
  • 150ml Lemonade
  • 5 dashes of Angostura Bitters

You could also add in fruit such as orange or lemon slices or tarten the drink with more lemon or sweeten with some muddled sugar or even a splash of Maraschino.

The drink was a warming, lenghtened version of Courvoisier but with more interest and flavours. You could ‘water’ it down with more lemonade if you wanted a longer drink with less of a kick or serve it warm if you wanted added warmth which the drink seems perfect for.
