How I met the New Year.........Hello Handsome!

Remember that Brandy I began macerating back in November?

Well despite its moniker, it became a
completely permissible,
totally delectable 
and simply sumptuous New Year's Pleasure
Nata's Taboo Punch


The process began in the am.
Had to make Rosemary Simple Syrup
and strain the Taboo Brandy.
Strainer then coffee filters then cheesecloth.  



Onward to squeezing limes and grapefruits for the juice.
For my large iceberg to place in the punch bucket, I froze water in a bundt pan. PERFECT! 
I placed the first 5 ingredients in my Punch Bucket with the berg early in the day, to let the flavors meld, (I placed it outside in the snow)

 Just before the guests arrived and I could no longer wait, I poured Prosecco in the mixture.
Gave it a twirl and partook!
I promise you, it was well worth the wait.

The ingredients are:
Nata's Taboo Brandy
Grapefruit Juice
Lime Juice
Rosemary Simple Syrup
A good dosing of Angostura Bitters
Prosecco

I will have to make a new batch of Taboo Brandy, in the mean time I am sure we can find some other substitutes!
