What-You-Will Punch

What-You-Will Punch

I named this punch after the subtitle of Shakespeare’s comedy “Twelfth Night”: A wonderfully boozy play merits a suitably potent (and fun) drink. The whiskey-based punch includes nutmeg and cinnamon, flavors that evoke the winter holiday from which the play takes its title — but it’s delicious any time of year. Be sure to prepare the oleo-saccharum in advance.
  • Serves: 10 persons



  1. Step 1

    Prepare oleo-saccharum a day in advance. Combine it with whiskey, tea, blood-orange juice, lemon juice, bitters and cinnamon sticks in a pitcher. Refrigerate for at least three hours. Remove cinnamon sticks and transfer punch to a punch bowl. Add five cups of ice. Float blood-orange wheels in the bowl. Grate a little nutmeg on top of each serving.
