Drink it up: Winter Party Punch

I just learned that my home state of Tennessee (good ol' Rocky Top!), was the first state in the nation to enact a prohibition law....on this day back in 1838. Since we're no longer dry in these parts, I thought I'd share a recipe for a delicious spirited punch. My friend was generous to give me some grapefruit so this is a perfect way to enjoy it!

A Wintry Mix Party Punch
  • 2 cups grapefruit vodka
  • 1 cup orange curacao
  • 3/4 cup fresh lime juice
  • 1 1/3 cups cranberry juice
  • 1/3 cup fresh grapefruit juice
  • 1 tsp orange bitters
  • grapefruit slices for garnish
Mix all ingredients in a large punch bowl filled with ice and serve immediately! You never know when the Temperance Society might come knockin' on your door!
