ADVENT CALENDAR: HOLIDAY STONE-FRUIT PUNCH

For Day Nineteen of the cocktail advent calendar, I created "Holiday Stone-Fruit Punch." I wanted to make a holiday fruit punch and realized I have a lot of stone fruit liquors. This rich punch blended a number of these together for a refreshing treat.

For the drink:

-1 oz aged rum (Don Q Añejo)

-1/2 oz dark rum (Myers's)

-1/2 oz cherry aperitivo (Don Ciccio & Figli Cerasum)

-1/2 oz peach schnapps (De Kuyper)

-1/2 black raspberry liqueur (Chambord)

-3/4 oz fresh lemon juice

-3 dashes Peychaud's bitters


Garnish:

Lime peel


Glassware:

Teak tea glass


Carve your lime peel into the shape of a Christmas tree. Add the drink ingredients to a cocktail shaker and fill with ice until the shaker is three-quarters full. Shake until chilled, 5-10 seconds. Pour through a Hawthorne and fine mesh strainer. Garnish the drink.
