nicol's secret pisco punch

pineapple syrup
lemon juice
gum syrup

Now, I'm pretty much a tomboy when I choose a cocktail: ladies aren't supposed to drink brown liquor and all that. Well, I ain't no lady! Punch? Now this is a drink that ladies and girls would both enjoy -- hell, anyone would love punch. It's just plain yummy. And I, too, love punch. And this punch is goood! The gum syrup adds something really lovely to the mouth-feel. I could drink this all night (and if you know anything about the history of punches in the Colonies, you'll know that people pretty much did.)

If you liked this, you might want to try the "Wings of Cherubs" recipe. The book contains what seems to me to be a good argument that the Lannes recipe is not the definitive one.

The preparation of the WoC recipe is somewhat time consuming, I'll be doing it for a party on July 10 and will write up the results.
