A great punch accomplishes several things: it’s delicious, it finds the balance between strong and weak, and of course, it’s pretty. This gorgeously yellow number (on the left above) fits the bill, thanks to a clever ginger-turmeric syrup that lends its spicy and earthy flavors to vodka, and of course, it looks festive enough to be the centerpiece of the bar. Another subtle win of this recipe is that it calls for the entire bottle of vodka. So often punch recipes call for just a cup or two, leaving you with a bottle to sit and gather dust above the fridge. Cheers!

How to Make It

Step 1

Stir together sugar, water, and ginger in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil over high; boil, stirring occasionally, until sugar dissolves, about 1 minute. Remove from heat; stir in turmeric. Let cool completely, about 30 minutes. Pour mixture through a fine mesh strainer lined with cheesecloth into a bowl; discard solids.

Step 2

Stir together ginger-turmeric syrup, vodka, lemon juice, and honey in a large pitcher or punch bowl until combined. Chill at least 2 hours or up to 24 hours.

Step 3

To serve, gently stir in chilled club soda; pour into glasses filled with ice.
