Cocktails will always remain a classy option, but when you’re hosting, what’s the best drink that’s going to win over hearts?
Punch is easy to make and serve to your guests so that you have more time to mingle and entertain your guests. All you have to do is prepare it in a big enough bowl so that everyone can serve themselves.
However, there are some mistakes you can make which can make punch go wrong. We’ve shortlisted all the things you should avoid the next time you want to serve punch, probably at your next holiday party!
Don’t make it too far ahead
We know that the best thing about punch is that you can make it well before the party starts and go about your tasks easily. You don’t have to worry about making drinks on the spot for everyone from scratch.
But leaving it in with the ice or other fruits inside can start to affect the taste and flavors.
The key to this is to time your preparation and serving time so that your punch doesn’t sit there for too long.
The best time to do it is the morning of your event. You can also add your chilled fruits and the ice a few hours before the party starts.
Make sure you serve it in the right sized glasses
Punch is meant to be enjoyed over the course of the evening with occasional refills whenever it seems suitable.
If you’re serving individual portions, make sure it’s in glasses bigger than a martini glass and smaller than a beer mug.
To serve it in a container where people can help themselves, you can serve it in a large bowl or a big pitcher. Some people even opt for drink dispensers if the crowd is large.
Hold off on the fizzy drinks
If you’re planning on mixing seltzers or any other kind of soda or even sparkling wine to the punch, don’t do it too soon.
Carbonated drinks tend to fade and leave an extra sugary taste behind which can potentially ruin your punch.
Always wait until the very last minute before you add it to the punch bowl.
Keep a balanced ratio of booze
Your spirit, sweet, sour and soda/water/wine ratio should always be 2:1:1:1. You can keep this in mind so you have a consistent drink throughout the night. The right balance is what makes punch great!
