Great flavor, maybe operator error?
This punch had the best flavor! Mom and I made this at Thanksgiving, and the flavor was just fantastic. But clearly we made an error somewhere along the way, because it got all separated and yucky looking. Those who were willing to overlook the weirdness were rewarded by a great taste. The recipe was very clear that the order of ingredients mattered greatly, so we did it exactly as described. But it still went ugly. I may try this again in the future for a party, to see if I can work out why it went wrong.
But I’ll have a backup punch ready, just in case.
