THIS IS A BEST MADE PARTY

These are custom punch recipes created for design outfitter Best Made Company. They were made in tandem with a series of events planned during the launch of their first brick and mortar store.
The letters C.C.F.G. mark many of Best Made's products. The letters stand for Courage, Compassion, Grace and Fortitude. Courage Under Fire and Grace Under Pressure are two recipes inspired by these virtues. They are intended for celebration where one invites guests to gather round the punch bowl, be merry and see what unfolds as the bottom of the punch bowl is revealed.
Successfully serving cocktails to a large group is challenging. Mixing individual drinks is often impractical, involves a lot of ice and slows the pace of a party. Punch provides a solution to all of these problems. Preparation is all done ahead of time, ice blocks are compact and intended to melt, and guests can easily serve themselves.
