Citrusy Gin and Blood Orange Punch

    Just made this punch last night for a holiday gathering...everyone loved it! We had to make two changes, though: we couldn't find blood orange liqueur anywhere, so we substituted pomegranate liqueur; also, it was REALLY potent, so we added a couple cups of lemon/lime soda. It was still pretty strong, but delicious! We will definitely make it again.

    This drink is amazing! Well worth the time it takes to muddle and sit. The Bluecoat Gin kicks it up a notch - really makes it pop . If you cannot find the Pur Likor Spice ... I used Blood Orange Liquor and let it steep in cinnamon sticks and a clove for a day. Delish!

    This cocktail is delicious. I agree with others that it is deceptively potent. I have served it to three large dinner parties and people LOVED it. Served in martini glasses with demerara-ed sugared rims. Looks best when pieces of ice ring break away and become part of cocktail. Used Bombay Sapphire with the Pur Likor -worked great. Suggest using small 1 cup containers for ice rings otherwise too hard to get out of the bowl! My new fave cocktail.
