Joy Of Cooking Update: Whiskey Cup

Posted by Trott

On Saturday, Humuhumu and I went to my friend Leslie's new apartment for an apartment-warming party. Figuring this was a good opportunity to get through another punch recipe, Humuhumu and I dutifully made the Whiskey Cup. The Whiskey Cup is made with 2 cups of crushed fresh pineapple, a quart of sliced strawberries, 3 cups of confectioner's sugar, 2 cups of dark rum, 2 cups of fresh lemon juice, half a cup of fresh orange juice, 1 cup of grenadine, two liters of club soda, and two full bottles of bourbon. That's an awful lot of punch—probably about enough for twenty people—but we were going to a party, so no problem!

Transporting all of that in a big punch bowl was not an option; it would have sloshed everywhere! So, I packed some of the last things to be added into an ice chest, put a smaller bowl of pre-punch inside the larger punch bowl (to catch any sloshing), and we made our way over. We also had a gift for Leslie and a few other things, so it was a bit of a hassle. But I didn't care! There were going to be lots of people to drink all this punch!

When we got to Leslie's new apartment, the first thing she said to me when she opened the door was, "The party's next week."


The picture is of me looking none-too-pleased with the amount of punch I had with no party to bring it to.

When we got back to my apartment, we put out the APB on Twitter and Facebook telling people to come drink some punch. But it was Saturday night and it was a tough sell as a lot of people already had plans. Brad and Lisa pulled through! They brought over pizza, a great time was had by all, and between the four of us, we managed to consume about half of the punch.

Pardon me; I need to go pour out the other half now.

Tomorrow: ¡Sangría!
