Cold Whiskey Punch

Page 76 in David Wondrich’s book, Imbibe

One teaspoon of powdered white sugar, dissolved in a little bit of water

Juice of half a lemon or one lime

One and a half wine glassesful (3oz) of Red Top Rye

Fill glass with shaved ice

Add two dashes (1 teaspoon) of rum

Shake well and strain into stem punch glass. Garnish with seasonal fruit or thin slices of lemon. Serve with a straw.

Very tasty cocktail, though not our favorite. We wondered if we’d used a lower quality rye (Sazerac 18 year) whether the punch would’ve been quite as good. Guess we’ll have to keep on practicing.
