Rob Bresser’s Drink of the Month – October 2008

YES!!!  I am back!  Finally, having been cleared of wrong doing of the most rediculous nature; never take cough medicine at work, children.  Here it is, folks, from me to you the October rendition of my D.O.M:

Harvest Moon Punch:


1 gal. Apple Cider (fresh is best if available)

6 Cinnamon Sticks

6 Cloves

6 Star Anises

1 Orange Peel

Place all into a stainless steel pot and simmer for an hour (No boiling, Goddam it!).  Strain the liquid off into a punch bowl, add a quart of your favorite bourbon and serve.  Best served warm.

Recipe by Dale DeGroff published in October 2008, Playboy.  Go get this Cocktail Guru’s book, The Essential Cocktail.  Order here.

Don’t forget the Samual Adams Octoberfest Seasonal is out now!  Grab some while you can!  There are also many other seasonal brews being released now by other brewmasters.  Experiment and see what your favorite is.  Especially look for Harvest Moon by Blue Moon, Jinx by Magic Hat, and Jack’s Pumpkin Spice Ale by Anheuser-Busch (Michelob Brewing Company).
