oscar party: how about a stiff bourbon mississippi punch? add these ingredients to your shopping list!

A bit bored with just a glass of champagne to watch the Oscars?  I don’t want to talk bad about my favorite go to drink, but this Mississippi Punch could be just the ticket to watch the Oscars with friends. Self serve… with a combination of black tea, bourbon, cognac, sugar, lemon and nutmeg… sounds like the perfect mix!

Here is the recipe:

Mississippi Punch

1½  cups raw sugar
1  quart black tea
1 quart bourbon
2  cups dark rum
2  cups cognac
1½  cups fresh lemon juice
1½  quarts water

Dissolve the sugar in the tea, then combine all ingredients in a large punch bowl, add a large block of ice, and allow to chill. Grate nutmeg over top, and serve in small punch cups.
