This cocktail came about from when we were developing cocktails for a Fall/Halloween cocktail class we were teaching. Did you know we teach cocktail classes? Our clients wanted fall cocktails and fun Halloween cocktails, and we wanted to make sure that we had some great flavors mixed in there as well!

Holiday Gin Punch

This holiday punch in a cup (although it could easily be made into a big punch bowl!) is a great party punch that everyone will enjoy. Which is what we wanted for this cocktail class as well, as sometimes making drinks for a class of mixed company can be difficult.

What Ingredients are Needed for the Spiced Gin Punch?

    • Gin
    • Orange or Pineapple Juice (see note in recipe below)
    • Spiced Simple Syrup
    • Clove Bitters
    • Tonic water


As we have seen, most men gravitate toward darker spirits, and women to the lighter, so we knew we had a hit for the women in this group. Altho, I, (Leah) am a whiskey girl, and I know a lot who are, so shout out to my ladies! But, we weren’t sure about the men!


A Great Party Punch

When we made this at the class, they were pleasantly surprised at the flavor, and this was one of the clear winning cocktails of the night! We have made this a number of times since having that cocktail class, too, with different juices, and it has been a winner every time.

That’s the best part of this punch, you can use any juice that you want. We encourage orange, orange-pineapple, or even Orange Apple Mango was delicious. Really any “orange” colored juice would be a hit in this. Gives a great flavor mix with the spiced simple syrup.

The spiced simple syrup was a great bit of baking spices, that makes me think of cuddly winter evenings. We infused cinnamon, star anise and cloves in this, and man, did our house smell good!

Toasted Spice Gin Punch

We did a toasted version of this over on Instagram, and then made a frozen drink recipe of this one as well! So, you have 2 cocktails in one recipe, and we liked it both ways, so we totally encourage you to make this holiday punch. Either on the rocks or frozen, this cocktail is a hit!

Can you make a whole punch bowl of this? Or is it meant to be made cocktail by cocktail. Wondering if things would settle poorly if it sits in a punch bowl for a while.

You could. You would just have to keep it warm somehow and not let the alcohol cook off. It would be close to a mulled wine then, so I would recommend if you did a big batch to put it in a slow cooker on low. Cheers!
