Our friend Maxwell was having a rough go that month. He had just been hit by a car on the way to work, and was laid up at home as result of a significant back injury. With a long recovery ahead of him, and having been figuratively chained to his couch on orders from his doctor, Maxwell did exactly what any rationally thinking citizen would do in that situation: He committed himself to a grueling regimen of green Chartreuse and episodes of “Lost”. We memorialized his return to health with this tropical and complex punch.
1 bottle of Brooklyn Gin (25 oz)
12 oz pineapple juice
6 oz fresh lime juice
6 oz simple syrup
3 oz green Chartreuse
6 oz chilled soda water
4 tablespoons of fresh rosemary leaves in the simple syrup
Lightly muddle the fresh rosemary and strain through a fine-mesh sieve into a large punch bowl with the other ingredients. Add ice and stir. Ladle into punch glasses and garnish with a rosemary sprig.
