All you LSU football fans out there can start your New Year’s Eve off right watching your beloved Tigers battle the Cardinals. If you haven’t heard yet, LSU will play Louisville in the Citrus Bowl in Orlando, Florida on December 31st. It will be Ed Orgeron’s first bowl game as a head coach and should be an exciting game.
And, if you’re an LSU sports fan and have not seen Brewster Belt Company’s LSU Sports needlepoint belt, you’re in for a treat (details below).
Since the game kicks off at 10am CT and it is the Citrus Bowl, after all, may we propose a morning cocktail with citrus…in a bowl…? Mimosas are always a simple and delicious option, but if you’re looking for a drink that’s a little more Louisiana and serves a group, Citrus Bowl Punch fits the bill!
Citrus Bowl Punch
Makes 15 servings
Adapted from Martha Stewart’s Whiskey Sour recipe.
- 3 cups bourbon
- 3 cups orange juice
- 2 ¼ cups freshly squeezed lemon juice
- ¼ cup granulated sugar
- Sliced citrus fruits and mint or basil leaves (optional)
In a large bowl, stir together first four ingredients until sugar is dissolved. If desired, add slices of citrus fruit and mint or basil leaves to the bowl as a garnish. Add ice to the glasses (not the bowl) to prevent watering down the punch and ladle the punch into glasses.
Cheers and go LSU Tigers! Also…
