Pauli's punch!

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
club soda
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!
