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.

Far superior to any other cocktail app

I have only been using the app for a short time but already I can tell that it is far superior to any other cocktail app I have used until now. The user interface is easy to use and visually appealing, and the search function displays recipes as you type which will make this app easy and fast to use. Highly recommended for use as a bartender or server, or at home making drinks for a party or night in. The developer also promises recipes added regularly and the customer support is second to none.
