At my mother's 80th birthday party today we served a "welcome drink" called Pauli's punch. (Pauli is short for her name, Pauline.) The drink was made with Hpnotiq, a French liqueur made with cognac and fruit juices. We added rum to give a little extra kick, lots of lime juice to cut all that sweetness, and some club soda to add a little fizz, because let's face it, even at 80 Pauli has pazazz!!
2 oz Hpnotiq liqueur
1/4 lime wedge, squeezed
1 oz white rum
lime wedge for garnishing
In a large glass, mix Hpnotiq with rum and the squeezed lime juice. Fill two ice-filled glasses with this mix until 3/4 of the way up the glass, then top off with the club soda. Garnish with lime.
Makes two punchy cocktails!
