2023 Let’s Get Blitzen: Cocktail Advent Calendar – Day 9 – Winter in Paradise Punch. ‘Tis the season for hosting and a punchbowl cocktail like this one is the perfect solution to prevent your guests from going thirsty, without having to spend your entire evening shaking and stirring.
This crowd-friendly cocktail packs a punch thanks to the bold and spicy taste of Fever-Tree Premium Ginger Beer that serves as the star ingredient. Combined with tropical notes of passion fruit, fresh citrus, Thai chilies, basil, and rum, this drink tastes like a day in paradise.

Fever-Tree premium mixers are made from the finest, naturally-sourced ingredients from around the world. The Premium Ginger Beer, in particular, is made from a signature blend of three gingers from Cochin, the Ivory Coast, and Nigeria. As with all the products in the Fever-Tree range, the Ginger Beer doesn’t contain any artificial colours, flavours, or sweeteners.
The finished product is not too sweet on the palate with a deep, long-lasting ginger flavour. The spicy clementine cordial serves to amplify the kick from the Fever-Tree Premium Ginger Beer which is balanced by a more mellow sweetener in the form of the honey, thyme & vermouth syrup and the bright, tropical notes of passion fruit juice. Prosecco and a bit of Fever-Tree Premium Club Soda add levity to this crowd-pleasing concoction.
The Fever-Tree Premium Club Soda is especially effective in adding effervescence to this punch as it’s made with soft spring water and high levels of fine carbonation for a clean, crisp taste. Every ingredient you add to a cocktail has a material impact on its flavour and balance. It’s equally important to use premium mixers as it is to use top-quality spirits.
Reaching for premium mixers from Fever-Tree is a great way to ensure you’re not only preserving the complex flavours you’ve built in your cocktail, but enhancing them.
To ensure your guests get the full cocktail experience, add a photogenic citrus ice ring to the punch bowl to keep your drink chilled and appropriately diluted throughout the evening, and set up a garnish station or add your garnish to each punch glass before your guests arrive.
