Mother's Ruin Punch

  • ACTIVE: 20 MIN
  • TOTAL TIME: 1 HR 20 MIN
  • SERVINGS: 8
  • STAFF-FAVORITE

Classicist bartenders have resurrected the centuries-old ritual of the formal punch service. Here, Philip Ward of New York's Death & Co. makes a potent concoction named after the old British slang for gin.

  1. 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  2. 3/4 cup chilled club soda
  3. 1 1/2 cups gin
  4. 1 1/2 cups fresh grapefruit juice, plus 3 thinly sliced grapefruit wheels, for garnish
  5. 3/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  6. 3/4 cup sweet vermouth
  7. 2 1/4 cups chilled Champagne or sparkling wine
  8. Ice
  1. In a large pitcher, stir the sugar with the club soda until dissolved. Stir in the gin, grapefruit and lemon juices and sweet vermouth and refrigerate until chilled, about 1 hour.
  2. Transfer the punch to a large bowl. Gently stir in the Champagne and float the grapefruit wheels on top. Serve in punch glasses over ice.
