Port Punch

Tawny port and bourbon play together nicely in a not-too-strong punch

There are so many reasons to love this made-for-a-party punch: It's warm with autumnal spice, vibrantly hued and best, of all, it's made with port so it's not too crazy-strong. The fortified red wine offers plenty of flavor, while bourbon plays a supporting role. With its citrus and spice notes, it's food-friendly, too, so your guests can sip it all night long.
