Summer entertaining should be as enjoyable for you as it is for your guests. The less chaos and running around in those final moments before the party starts the better, which is why punch cocktails work so brilliantly. You can make a batch hours before you welcome people into your home, and add the ice and garnishes just as the doorbell rings.
We love using Patrón Silver for this recipe and get a kick out of people's surprise when they find out that tequila is the main spirit. Patrón Silver is a fantastic ingredient for warm weather cocktails like this one.
Strawberry Thyme Punch with Patrón Silver Recipe 2 cups fresh strawberries for muddling 1 cup fresh strawberries for garnish 1 package thyme (3 sprigs for muddling, the rest for garnish) 2 ounces strawberry liqueur 2 cups Patrón Silver 2 cups homemade sweet and sour 2 cups club soda (or lemon lime soda)
Directions Muddle 2 cups of strawberries in the Patrón Silver. If desired, strain the mixture to filter out the strawberry's pulp. Muddle the thyme with this mixture and strain again. Add the strawberry liqueur and homemade sweet and sour and stir well. Just before your guests arrive, add a cup of sliced strawberries, the rest of the thyme package, the soda, and ice.
