Labor day has come and gone but lingering high temperatures make it feel like August. We’re pouring refreshing summer libations but listening to conversations about apples and pumpkins. It’s confusing. What’s a drinker to do?


The Spirit recommends Punch, a nice transition beverage as we slide on into fall. We trust these guys so we’re on board. Pineapple Julep Punch, it is!


Pineapple Julep Punch

1 ripe pineapple, peeled and cut into 1-inch chunks
2 oranges, juiced
1/2 cup raspberry syrup
1/2 cup Maraschino liquor
1/2 cup gin
1 bottle prosecco, or other sparkling wine
