Throughout the month of July The Barman will be sharing summer punch ideas - just in time for the long overdue heat wave.
This week’s SFTW prize was Cointreau; The Barman will be mixing it with fruit, Champagne and Brandy to create a truly sweet and refreshing summer punch.
2.5 measures Cointreau
2.5 measures Three Barrels VSOP Brandy
1.5 measures Giffard Gomme Syrup
1 and a half bottles Champagne
1 orange sliced
1 lemon sliced
8 whole strawberries sliced
HOW TO MAKE
In a large punch bowl mix Cointreau, Brandy, syrup, Champagne.
Add the ice, orange, lemon and strawberry slices.
Serve and enjoy.
FYI: This recipe serves six people.
The Cointreau adds a lot of depth to the punch with sweet, zesty oranges with undertones of lemon and nutmeg. The citrus allows a fresh and fruity taste which is paired off nicely with the champagne. A fantastic punch that would be ideal for any summer celebration or BBQ.
