Gin punch for V Day Massacre Party?

lindseyquinn Jan 31, 2007 10:20 AM

I'm having a St. Valentine's Day Massacre potluck and Masquerade in a couple of weeks, for which I'll be making a Maryland-style crab boil (because seafood, I think, is appropriately lusty, and 'Crab Boil' has the kind of grossly lecherous ring I'm looking for with this event).

I'd also like to serve some kind of Prohibition cocktail, maybe a punch to keep things easy with a crowd, and I'd love any suggestions. I would like to use gin (though not of the bathtub variety), and ideally, I'd like to use as few different types of alcohol as possible, to keep the cost reasonable.

Any suggestions?

    Gin, Campari, passion fruit puree/juice, bitters, soda (recipe courtesy of Vessel bar in Seattle)

      Do you think that would translate well to a punch? I think I'd like it, but I wonder if it'd swing for a crowd. Any suggestions on how to adapt the measurements?
