Philadelphia Fish House Punch


Philadlephia Fishhouse PunchPhiladelphia Fish House Punch is a classic rum-based cocktail said to have been invented by our forefathers in the 1700s.  It is traditionally served in a punch bowl, but can also be made in a shaker for individual servings.  Bartender extraordinaire Tim Monaghan showed us how to make this delicious and festive drink on a recent episode of “Thirsty in Brooklyn,” and he was kind enough to share his version of the recipe:

  • 2 lemon peels
  • 1 heaping tsp sugar
  • 3/4 oz lemon juice
  • 1 oz Jamaica Rum
  • 1 oz Apple Jack

Muddle the lemon peels and sugar in the bottom of your shaker to release the oils in the lemon.  Add lemon juice, rum, and apple jack.  Give it a good shake, pour and serve.

*Party Tip: Batch this for a large party in a punch bowl!  Festive and easy.
