Oaxaca Punch

Fall has definitely arrived in Kansas City, but don’t let the cool weather keep you from enjoying a fantastic cocktail with flavorful fruit.

You might think of punch as a libation reserved for  summer cocktail parties by the pool, or maybe you have memories of drinking it out of a trash can in college. But this Oaxaca Punch recipe takes some of my favorite intoxicating ingredients to a whole new level.

I made this last weekend for a dinner party and it was a huge hit. The smokey Mezcal and depth of the port lend the concoction just enough warmth to be enjoyed on a crisp night on the patio. Best of all for the fall – it’s topped with freshly grated cinnamon!

Oaxaca Punch

  • 8 ounces Tequila
  • 1 ounce Mezcal
  • 3 ounces Tawny Port
  • 2 ounces St. Germain elderflower liquer
  • 6 ouces pineapple juice
  • 4 ounces water

  • 2 ounces simple syrup
  • 10 drops Bittermans Hellfire Habanero Shrub (or substitute orange bitters)

Top with grated cinnamon. Garnish with lime wheel and pineapple wedge. Serves 5
