This signature punch is based on a cocktail Satterfield’s currently has on the drink list called Pear Necessities.
Serving size: 6 people
9 oz Bourbon or Vodka
3 oz Tuaca
3 oz Fresh Lime Juice
3 oz Spiced Pear Syrup
6-8 oz Cava or Prosecco
Block of ice
Punch bowl with glassware
The night before mixing the punch, fill a small, square, plastic container with water and put it in the freezer. Overnight, the water will freeze to make a square block of ice that should fit in your punch bowl. Using a dense block of ice as opposed to smaller machine made will help you punch last longer during your party.
The day of your event place your ice block into the punch bowl and mix your choice of Bourbon or vodka, Tuaca, Lime Juice, and sparkling wine in your punch bowl. Make sure to stir to mix everything well. Use pear slices, rosemary, and lemon peels as garnishes.
To make Spiced Pear Syrup:
Take 5-6 Bosc or Anjou pears and dice them up. In a small pot, place the pears, 5 star anise, 2 cinnamon sticks, and 4 cloves with enough water to evenly cover everything. Put the pot on the stove on medium heat, allowing pears to cook thoroughly. Once cooked, allow to cool and separate the spices from the pears. Juice the pears to retain the liquid. Add equal parts light brown sugar to pear juice.
