Did it again -- my Mississippi punch -- I neglected to add sugar. A bracing drink indeed on a frigid winter's evening. Being a wimp I poured a float of feste's gomme. Can't get good bar help these days it seems.
Speaking of feste, I need to place my semiannual orgeat order for a case or two and noticed she now offers passion fruit syrup. I am tempted. Has anybody tried it?
Edit: the gomme made the punch far too sweet. So I topped up the tumbler with brandy, rum, and arrack. And a little ice. Such as would fit. Now my punch is a bit too boozy. Could use more lemon. Much more lemon. But at least it's not too sweet.
The other day I mixed up some fish house punch and it came out just right. Don't know what the problem is with Mississippi.
But soon it may not matter much.
