Hospitality Porron Punch

Ezra Star, Drink | Boston

“The best porron cocktails are light, effervescent, able to be shared by a group and fun,” explains Ezra Star of the ideal characteristics of any drink served in a Spanish porron. Her mixture of brandy, rum, lemon and grenadine is topped with a healthy dose of Cava; her recommended presentation is over a bed of ice with an optional bib on the side.
