Recipe Notes

Now in this recipe I poured the Pilsner into the punch. You don't necessary have to do this, but knowing that my people will probably want as little to do as possible, I threw it in. If you want a brighter cocktail that has a bit more effervescence, then more 3/4 of the cocktail in a glass and top with the Pilsner. I used Steamwhistle, because I'm all about the local beer vibes, and it really is an easy drinking beer. 

Use the muddled Blood Oranges and mint in the bowl as a garnish, just as you do with a Sangria. A little fruit never hurts and you may feel better about what you are drinking. 

Now with this punch, since it was already stirred with ice, make sure that you use a large ice cube for each individual glass. If this all sounds super annoying to you right about now, then skip the pitcher part all together. Just combine everything in the bowl, and in the individual glasses fill it up with ice. Just make sure to give it a good stir.
