Friends With Benefits…Wine Punch

FWBCocktailPunch is definitely not the first thing that comes to my mind when I hear the words, “friends with benefits,” but to each his own. 😉

At The Broken Shaker Bar at the Freehand Hotel in Miami, they came up with a mildly boozy, bubbly, ginger tinged, adult lemonade, SO made for day drinking, that you’ll want to:

  • Dig out that ancient cut crystal punch bowl;
  • Use a Bundt pan & some edible flowers to make a big, flashy ice ring; and
  • Throw this punch together for a girl’s day by the pool ASAP!

Friends With Benefits

  • 4 Cups Ginger Beer – I prefer Zevia 0 Calorie/0 Carbs Ginger Beer
  • 2 Cups Fresh Lemon Juice
  • 1 Bottle (750 ml) Rosé Wine – I prefer Westerly Rosè
  • 1 Bottle (750 ml) Cocci Aperitivo Americano
  • 10 Dashes Grapefruit Bitters
  • Lemon Slices (for garnish)
  • Edible Flowers (for garnish)

Place an ice ring or 3 cups ice cubes in a punch bowl.  Add the ginger beer, lemon juice, rosé, Cocchi Aperitivo Americano, and grapefruit bitters, and stir together gently. Garnish with the lemon slices and edible flowers, if using.  Serve in rocks glasses.  #CAGirlsGoneWine
