A party isn't a party without a good drink or cocktail from Farmwife Drinks. My recent obsession with amaretto inspired this super tasty and super strong Amaretto Bourbon Punch. The fall party I brought it to approved it and asked to keep the leftovers when we left. Winning Punch Recipe!
What goes in a Bourbon Punch
- Bourbon - This does not need to be a high-end bourbon. There are lots of middle-of-the-road bourbons like Jim Beam that work in this punch. And yes, you can also use just a regular whiskey.
- Amaretto - Just like with the bourbon, this doesn't have to be a fancy amaretto. Just by a moderately price amaretto and you will be fine.
- Orange Juice - Pulp free please. Unless you like pulp. Then get the normal full of pulp oj.
- Limeade - A can of frozen limeade. I have cases of this stuff in my freezer. It is magical in punches.
- Maraschino Cherries and Juice - Cherries make everything better.
- Ginger Ale - Or a limeade soda like Sprite. I just prefer ginger ale in almost every single punch I make.
Amaretto Bourbon Punch
The cocktail is a breeze to make. If you can dump bottles of booze and juice in a large mason jar you can make this amaretto bourbon punch. The combination of fruit and ginger ale makes this punch from good to downright addictive.
In the bottom of the gallon jar, dump an orange sliced and a jar of maraschino cherries. Ove top of the fruit, push out a can of frozen limeade and two limeade cans fulls of orange juice.
Now starting pouring the bourbon. The whole bottle. An entire fifth of bourbon. It is called Amaretto Bourbon Punch for a reason. I used Jim Beam. You use the bourbon you like. I am partial to bourbon. After all, a lot of Indiana corn becomes Kentucky bourbon.
I use a big ladle spoon the amaretto bourbon punch out of the gallon mason jar. Garnish with the cherries and orange slices. This will soon become a requested drink for all of your future get-togethers.
