This recipe were originally created at the now closed Stanton Social in New York City. Using pineapple-infused whiskey as the base of the recipe, the Centennial Punch is the perfect punch recipe for winter parties. One of the most pineapple-infused cocktails you’ll find, since three of its four ingredients come from tropical fruits.
Though the whiskey and coriander make it a great option for summer parties, the whiskey also gives it a twist that makes it an excellent choice for cold weather entertaining. You should be able to make as much pineapple whiskey as you like. The recipe makes just enough for the punch but it can also be made into a highball. The next time you host a party, puree more pineapple, squeeze a few lemons and caramelize more. All that’s left to do is combine everything in your favorite glass pitcher, and it’s all ready for you!
When preparing, increase both ingredients. If you were to use 1 cup of pineapple extract to flavor an entire 750ml (just over 3 cups) bottle of whiskey. In addition, no matter how much you infuse, you might need to extend the infusion period by at least three days. One day cannot be considered enough time for a mild flavor like pineapple, especially one that is facing an imposing concoction like whiskey. Prepare for the party in plenty of time and keep testing until you achieve the desired intensity.
