About the Garrick Club Punch Cocktail
Garrick Club Punch tasted as good in 1835 as it does today.
Ingredients in the Garrick Club Punch Cocktail
- 4 Lemons
- .5 cup Superfine sugar
- 1 cup Fresh lemon juice, strained
- 1 (750-mL) bottle Gin*
- 4 oz Luxardo Maraschino Liqueur or Grand Marnier
- 24 oz Seltzer water or club soda, chilled
Glass: Punch or highball
How to make the Garrick Club Punch Cocktail
Peel the lemons with a vegetable peeler, avoiding the white pith. Muddle the peels with the sugar in a 3-quart pitcher or punch bowl and let stand for 30 minutes. Add the lemon juice and stir until the sugar has dissolved. Add the gin and Luxardo Maraschino Liqueur or Grand Marnier, and stir. Fill the pitcher or bowl halfway with ice and add the seltzer or club soda. Stir again and serve in individual punch or highball glasses.
*Any type of gin will do, but I prefer a Dutch genever, such as Bols Genever, or an old Tom gin, such as Ransom Old Tom or Hayman’s Old Tom.
