Kill Devil Punch
- SERVINGS: Makes 6 drinks
Death & Co • Manhattan
Even more than most East Coast bartenders, Phil Ward is obsessed with traditional recipes, which he learns by heart (he has a photographic memory), then tweaks. At Death & Co, one of the first places in the country to offer old-fashioned punch-bowl service, he cools his Kill Devil Punch with a block of raspberry ice that releases berries into the bowl as it melts.
- In a pitcher, combine the rum, pineapple juice, Simple Syrup and lime juice and refrigerate until chilled, at least 1 hour.
- Stir the punch and strain it into a punch bowl. Add the Raspberry Ice. Pour in the chilled Champagne and stir once. Garnish the punch with the raspberries and lime wheels. Serve in small rocks glasses or tea cups.
