Cuban Commie Punch

In Cocktail, Punch on April 26, 2010 at 2:21 pm

Here’s a quick and fairly simple punch recipe that I threw together for a friend’s party. I know the name may raise a few brows, but the name is a play on the word Kamikaze which is somewhat where the inspiration came from. It also utilizes Russian Vodka with Cuban flavors. I hope you all like this one!

Demerara Simple Syrup (1:1) 48 ounces
Guava Nectar 48 ounces
Lemon Juice 24 ounces
Cilantro Water 6 ounces*
Rosewater 1.5 ounce
Angostura Bitters 1 ounce

Simply mix all the ingredients in about a 1 gallon container; when ready to serve, pour into a punch bowl with vodka at a ratio of about 1.5-2 parts vodka: 1 part punch mixture. Enjoy!

*To make cilantro water, remove the stems from two bunches of cilantro, purée in a blender with 2 ounces of the punch mixture, strain and discard the pulp et voilà. That’s it.
