Baijiu Party Punch Recipes: In Honour Of China’s Qing Emperors

Baijiu Cocktail Punch In Honour Of China's Qing Emperors

You are having a friendly get together, the catering has been sorted. Now you want a centrepiece to show off your creativity, something eye catching for when your guests arrive. You can do no better than a good punchbowl filled with a colourful punch.

Remember, what you are creating is just a huge cocktail, stirred not shaken. So do not be daunted, think of your favourite cocktail and up size. Let your imagination go with the flow. Do not put ice cubes in with the punch, have a well stocked ice bucket next to the punch bowl so individuals can add ice to their preference.

Keep all ingredients in refrigerator until the last moment, so the punch will be nicely chilled. As the average punch bowl holds 30 x 5 fluid ounce servings, it therefore holds 1 imperial gallon. I have kept this in mind while creating these punches. So I have used the names of the Qing and Ming rulers for the punch creations, starting with the Qing dynasty.
