I have a proper stone jug I’ve used in the past to age batches of Scotch Punch, using a recipe from Here’s How.
This time, though, I’m going to use two bottles of Pikesville Supreme Straight Rye Whiskey instead of scotch. Pikesville Punch sure has a ring to it. I’ll make some other adjustments, like maybe using strong mint green tea, cardamom pods, and maple syrup.
Such extravagant use of a disappearing species – they don’t bottle this whiskey anymore, and I’ve hoarded a depleting supply – is in keeping with the tenor of our times. I look forward to sharing liberally from my jug.
Should be ready for the holidays.
