The Story Behind The Rosy Gin Punch

When warm weather arrives, I love having friends over for dinner and cocktails. Creating and batching a signature cocktail for an evening is a great entertaining trick — you can make it in advance in a carafe and give everything a quick stir when your guests arrive.

This recipe is for one gin drink, but it’s easy to double, triple, or quadruple the recipe for a crowd. If you do, go ahead and mix all your ingredients directly in the carafe or pitcher.

Ingredients

  • 2 ounces gin
  • ¾ ounce pineapple juice
  • ¾ ounce lemon juice
  • ¾ ounce rose syrup, such as Monin
  • Pineapple wedge and rosemary sprig for garnish (optional)

Directions

  1. Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice.
  2. Shake to chill and combine ingredients.
  3. Strain into your cocktail glass over fresh ice.
  4. Garnish and enjoy!
