"Noble Pursuit Punch | Crafted Pour"

"I ended up with a few events rolled into one on this bevvy. Since the new Zelda game came out yesterday, I wanted to make a riff on the “Noble Pursuit.” I got the Geeky Bartender book by Cassandra Reeder from a well-meaning aunt for Christmas, and while the recipes are mostly unbalanced novelty, a lot of them are a great jumping off point. The original called for gin, light rum, watermelon, lime, and lavender syrup. I wasn’t making lavender syrup, so I brought in new florals with the liqueur and bitters, and further exoticized via grenadine and orgeat. It was also the perfect time to finally break out the awesome Aluna coconut rum that recently hit shelves here. I always incorporate flowery flavours for my Mother’s Day offerings, making this one something of a double whammy. And since today is World Cocktail Day, that makes three!
