If your guests call for something a little stronger, the bartenders at Corton recommend a festive seasonal punch that Emeril compared to "drinking an apple pie." Give it a try - we promise it's much more tasty than your average egg nog!


Late Autumn Punch

2? oz VSOP Cognac
1 oz Smoked Apple Cider (may substitute with regular or spiced Apple Cider)
? oz Fresh Lemon Juice
? oz Muscovado Simple Syrup (recipe follows)
For garnish: 1 apple ring or slice

Combine all ingredients in a standard shaker and fill halfway with ice. Shake until combined and strain onto fresh large ice cubes. Garnish with an apple ring or slice.

For the Muscovado Sugar:
Muscovado sugar is a cane sugar is made by pressing sugarcane to release the naturally sweet juice and then cooking it slightly before allowing it to dry. You can find this sugar at gourmet supermarkets in your area or online. Take 2 parts sugar and 1 part water, bring up to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer until syrupy.

1)If you're fancy like Jonathan, you get a lighter & set the rum on fire.
2) If you don't have rum, you can substitute orange juce, but then, no fire.

This makes 4-5 servings. And yeah, I had two.
