This warm party punch from Manhattan bartender Jane Danger packs some added heat with a spicy jalapeño and rum honey. But chile-phobes shouldn’t fear: the heat of the spiced honey is not at all overwhelming; “in fact it’s very light and warming,” Danger notes.
6 oz. aged rum
12 oz. apple cider
2 oz. fresh lemon juice
3 oz. jalapeño-rum honey
Tools: barspoon, punch bowl
Garnish: freshly grated cinnamon and a lemon wedge
On a stovetop, heat all ingredients together until steaming. Ladle into mugs and garnish.
To make the jalapeño-rum honey: Combine 1 1/2 cups of honey with one sliced and smashed jalapeño (seeds intact) and two ounces of aged rum. Stir and let sit overnight at room temperature. Remove the jalapeño chunks before using. Store in a dark, cool place for up to one month.
Makes approximately 6 servings.
