Thirsty Thursday: How to Make Mississippi Punch
Each week we highlight a different drink from a state or region. This week we're heading to Oxford, Mississippi for a drink that's great as a cocktail or mixed in large batches as a punch.
Mississippi Punch supposedly got its start at a fraternity party in Oxford, MS in the 1980s. Apparently the guys threw whatever they had in a bowl and this dangerous cocktail was born. Lemon Juice and Simple syrup hide the punch from 4 oz of alcohol.
- 2 oz Cognac
- 1 oz Bourbon
- 1 oz Dark or Spiced Rum
