Citizens! My best wishes to you for a 2015 replete with gastronomic delights, a surfeit of good cheer and a brimstone whiff of revolutionary fervor! 😀
To celebrate, I refer you to one of my favorite historical recipes – for a punch guaranteed to put the Bacchanalia into your New Year’s Eve soirée!
Charleston was the home of the “Light Dragoons”, a pseudo-military society of carousing gentlemen in the late 1700’s who really knew how to throw a party.
This punch WAS in fact the party – it serves about 50!
Interestingly, this particular recipe despite originating in South Carolina ended up being published by a Canadian politician, from her Northernly carpetbagging grandfather. 😉
Enjoy, citizens – stay safe this evening and enjoy yourselves in a manner worthy of your Generalissimo!
Battle on in 2015!
