For an exotic twist on a holiday punch, "
It's 5 O'clock Somewhere
" author Colleen Mullaney suggests this "pink lady" of cocktails.
"Punches are great attention-getters," she says, "and you can use what you already have. I use a clear, crystal bowl that was a wedding gift, mix-and-match glasses, and the punch station becomes a centerpiece, the water cooler at the party."
Mullaney also likes champagne cocktails during the holiday season, as they can be reasonably concocted with inexpensive Champagne and fruity infusions like raspberry and limoncello. But, here, lick your lips and take a look at her tasty take on the "Sing Sling."
