Touch Down, TBT cocktail

It’s back. Football. Here is an original MDC cocktail punch we designed for Super Bowl 2014. Bourbon coupled with applejack and awash in ginger ale. Like football, all appropriate features for a uniquely American sport. Below is the pitcher recipe, serving 12, and the Mocktail instructions.

Touch Down – Serves 12 touchdown redux vert
1 cup bourbon
1 cup Applejack
4 ounces fresh lime juice
2 ounces fresh lemon juice
1 apple, finely diced
4 cups light ginger ale
Crushed ice

In a large pitcher combine all the ingredients except the ginger ale and ice. Let stand for an hour. To serve, add ginger ale to pitcher and stir several times to combine. Fill old-fashioned glasses with crushed ice and pour 4 ounces of punch in each one. Include some diced apple in each serving.

Mocktail: Substitute 2 or more cups of unsweetened apple juice for the bourbon and Applejack.

Tasting notes: Terrifically tasty. A great and long-lasting cocktail punch. You’ll look for reasons to make it, even for one.

Tomorrow: Friday’s drink is full of grace
