The most important accessory you'll pair with your New Year's Eve party dress is a celebratory cocktail. We chatted with the pouring pros at Punch Bowl Social who gave us a sip recipe that will ring your bell. Swing by their just-opened location downtown or make this little concoction at home for your festive friends. 

Connoisseur Cup Punch

Ingredients:
2 cups Breckenridge Gin
1/2 cup Dolin Blanc Vermouth (do not substitute another dry vermouth, but if necessary use Lillet Blanc)
2 cups Teakoe’s Kodiak Mountain Mint Tea (prepared from tea bags)
1 cup lavender syrup*
1 cup fresh lemon juice (fresh squeezed the day punch is made)

Directions:
For the lavender syrup, boil the desired amount of water, add 1 cup dried lavender flowers to every liter of boiled water and let steep for 1 hour. Strain flowers from water. For every cup of lavender water, stir in 1 cup sugar until it is dissolved. Combine all ingredients, stir and serve chilled over ice with a lemon slice and thyme sprig. Serves eight people with two full servings each. Cheers!
