The amazing Algonquin Bar punch is a classic recipe from the Algonquin Hotel in Manhattan. It’s very boozy with rum, Champagne and gin and perfect for any season and occasion!
This recipe is adapted from the Bon Appétit Holiday Entertaining magazine and it was a huge hit at our party. It’s not weak, as there are three types of liquor in it, but the taste is perfect and not overbearing at all.
The lemon peel and raspberries make it fruity and refreshing. It’s really a great recipe for any occasion and I’ll be making it often!
The Algonquin Hotel is a New York City historic landmark. It opened in 1902 and is rich in history. They even sell a $10,000 martini with ice “a diamond” dropped in on the bottom of the glass. You can read more about the bar and history here. It’s fascinating!
