They aren’t kidding around with this baby. Load up on this concoction of dark Mount Gay Eclipse rum, Luxardo Maraschino liqueur, tawny Port and Aperol. The notes of orange and lemon serve to distract from the boozy flavor, but you know you’re going to have a wicked hangover the next day.
$190 for 15-20 servings from Jigger & Pony.
Luke Mangan Sangria
This is as traditional as they come. Just a whole lot of brandy, Cointreau, 2010 Miguel Torres Tempranillo from Spain, lemon, lime and orange wedges and juice, tempered with sugar syrup and lemonade, make this the perfect summer refreshment on a balmy day; enjoy with a healthy dose of people watching.
$95 for 10-15 servings from Salt tapas & bar.
The Maison Ikkoku Punch
Only fresh ingredients (aside from the booze) including an assortment of berries and herbs like basil, rosemary and thyme go into this seemingly innocent number. But don’t let its fruity and herbaceous nature fool you, lashings of Grey Goose, Bombay Sapphire, Giffard Ginger and Cassis liqueur, as well as a full bottle of Bottega Gold Prosecco give it oomph.
$298 for 12-16 servings from Maison Ikkoku.
