Royal Byers Punch

Ryan Maybee

Punches are fantastic for serving large groups. They are beautiful, elegant, layered with flavors, and deceptively potent. A great way to kick off a dinner party is with a bowl of punch. This recipe was created by J. Rieger & Co. Co-Founder Ryan Maybee and has become a tradition at his home with his family and neighbors, owners of the historic Byers Mansion. To learn more about the vast history of punch and plenty of recipes, read 'Punch: The Delights and Dangers of the Flowing Bowl', by David Wondrich.
