Libelula Tequila Joven, Brovo Douglas Fir Liqueur, Fruitful Mission Fig Liqueur, Cinnamon, Rooibos, Vanilla, Cloud Mountain Black Currant-Rosemary Kombucha, Rosemary Ice
Teas are capable of capturing many of earth’s flavors, and Kombucha is made by fermenting tea. Punch! Partner Cloud Mountain Kombucha—located in Urbana, Illinois—is working to capture flavors of the midwest. The Punch! Minds used Cloud Mountain’s Black Currant-Rosemary Kombucha in their Winter 2023 Cocktail Collection to introduce Booch with the Fir.
The Punch Minds at Punch! Bar & Lounge in Downtown Champaign, Illinois double down on their Punch! Partner dedication by pairing fermented tea with cold brewed Rooibos Tea acquired from their downtown neighbor: Walnut Street Tea Co. Brovo Douglas Fir Liqueur made from Washington Douglass Fir spring buds grown on the side of Mount Baker evokes a bit of the mountain range envisioned by Cloud Mountain. Tequilla, Vanilla, and Lemon round out the true nature of this cocktail.
Rosemary-infused water is frozen into green hexagonal shapes for a mesmerizing drink that will grow stronger rosemary notes as they dwindle. Punch!-Crafted Rosemary Tincture creates a mist of aroma over the mouth of the glass to compliment the rosemary sprig and bring about a trifecta of rosemary support to Cloud Mountain’s local garden flavor.
