By now, we’ve all seen/heard/reacted to Lemonade, Beyonce’s “visual album” that basically stands as a big “you cheatin’ bastard!” anthem about a woman (who, I wonder?) calling out her husband (are you listening, Jay-Z?) for an hour of moody, thoughtful, maybe even ground-breaking music. So, we thought it would be appropriate to show our solidarity with a lemonade cocktail this week which we are calling, natch, Mrs. Carter’s One-Two Punch. And we made enough so you can share it with friends in solidarity.
4 cups apple cider
1.25 cups lemonade (1 cup lemon juice and 1/4 cup honey syrup)
1 bottle white Puerto Rican rum
1 cup fresh berries
Making it: Combine cider, lemonade and rum in a punch bowl and stir. When ready to serve, add in ice and fruit and chill for at least 15 minutes. Garnish individual punch glasses with lemon wheels, berries and mint. Put on Beyonce and chill.
