Summer Refreshment

I have been on the hunt for a drink dispenser for a while but don't really care for the usual ones around. Then I spied this beauty, via NapaStyle.

I love that it is large and has the cork-like top. This would make a unique wedding or house warming gift.

Need a recipe to fill it, try this one.

Airmail Punch (via InStyle July 2011, via Jim Meehan, manager of a bar in NYC - thus making it automatically cool, right?)

This recipe serves 8, so you will probably want to at least double it to half-way fill the above container.

1 bottle of champagne

1 1/4 cups of white rum

2/3 cups fresh lime juice

1 3/4 cups honey water*

Add all ingredients to a container and serve over ice

*Honey Water

1 3/4 cups water

3/4 cup clover honey (local preferred)

Bring water to a boil, then turn off heat and add honey. Stir until honey dissolves. Chill before adding to punch.

Enjoy and don't forget to invite me over too!

Thank you for sharing the unique and lovely punch holder. I too love the cork top. And the recipe has me intrigued - honey water! Never heard of it, but now I want to try the recipe even more. :)

Thank you for stopping by the blog. I hope you have a great conference, and I think you enjoy Bethenny's DVD. I too get a kick out her and this workout keeps it real, but challenges you if you choose to ramp it up. Have a great week. :)
