Winter Traveler’s Punch

Winter Traveler's Punch cocktail recipe with dark rum, spiced rum, Ancho Reyes, orgeat and pineapple juice

If you’re looking for a respite from all those hot, heavy holiday drinks, look no further! The Winter Traveler’s Punch from bartender Gaston Graffigna at NYC’s Bua is a tiki-style twist on the flavors of the season that somehow manages to be just as warm and comforting as it is crisp and refreshing.

Graffigna uses Gosling’s for the dark rum, but you can use anything you like – even a dark spiced rum would work here in addition to the regular spiced rum the recipe calls for.

Despite the relatively big portion of chile liqueur (Ancho Reyes), it’s not as spicy as we were expecting. The spice is just enough to warm you up, supported by rich flavors of vanilla and almond and smoke.
