Ecto-Punch – Halloween 2010

Ecto-Punch

I tried to make a simple Halloween night punch that was green at the end (though you wouldn’t know by the photo).  Slime, boogers, nuclear waste… these all came to mind as a reason to go green for a Halloween beverage.  And why?  “Because…because… it’s a Halloween-a”  (check out the clip-0:44: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X-nZanL6AAo )

Ecto-Punch is basically a boooo-zy sweet mint green tea with a slight hint of peach.  Someone from Death & Co. said a good punch has caffeine in it.

Recipe (about 18 servings):

  • 15 oz. Plymouth Gin
  • 10 oz Jameson
  • 10 dashes Angostura bitters
  • 10 dashes Peach Fee Brothers bitters
  • bundle of fresh mint
  • 10 oz green tea (3 tea bags steeped in 10 oz water)
  • Oleosaccharum of 6 oz turbinado sugar & peels of 6 lemons
  • 8 lemons juiced
  • 4 limes juiced
  • 2 limes and 1 lemon cut into wheel slices for garnish

Prep: muddle all the mint with simple syrup.  Fine strain into a punch bowl.  Add all of the ingredients, stir and garnish with limes & lemons.   You could top each punch glass with a champagne floater.  I didn’t because my bar only carries garbage.

Here’s some highlights from Halloween 2010.  The dickhead behind this here blog is the white cyborg (CB-743).
