the appetizer:

Organic, Shaken and Stirred: Hip Highballs, Modern Martinis, and Other Totally Green Cocktails by Paul Abercrombie, includes recipes like Lavender Lemon Drop; Pear Tea Martini; Perfect Whiskey Punch; and Pineapple Caipirinha with Sweet Lime Espuma.

Perfect Whiskey Punch



Perfect Whiskey Punch


Makes 10 drinks

This drink takes a classic punch recipe—we're talking 1817 classic—and gives it a gustatory goosing with the addition of dry vermouth and orange bitters. But what makes this punch, well, perfect is the addition of pineapple syrup, made from fresh organic pineapples and organic cane sugar.

  • 20 ounces rye whiskey
  • 10 ounces dry vermouth
  • 5 ounces sweet vermouth
  • 5 ounces Pineapple-Infused Organic Simple Syrup (recipe folllows)
  • 20 dashes of orange bitters
  • 10 thin slices organic orange
  • Pineapple chunks from the simple syrup

Combine the rye, vermouths, simple syrup, and bitters in a punch bowl and stir. Add the orange slices and pineapple chunks. Serve in ice cube-filled double old-fashioned glasses, making sure to include an orange slice and piece of pineapple in each drink.


Organic Simple Syrup

Makes 2 cups

  • 1 cup organic granulated sugar
  • 8 ounces water

Combine the sugar and water in a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and stir until the sugar is dissolved. Remove from the heat and let cool to room temperature. The syrup can be stored, in an airtight container, in the refrigerator for up to 1 month.

Organic Brown Sugar Simple Syrup

Substitute 1 cup firmly packed organic brown sugar for the granulated sugar.

Pineapple-Infused Organic Simple Syrup

Combine several small chunks of peeled organic pineapple with 6 ounces Organic Simple Syrup and let infuse overnight in the refrigerator. Strain and store in an airtight container. The syrup will keep in the refrigerator for up to 1 month.
