Erick Castro, the former general manager at Rickhouse Bar in San Francisco, makes this easy holiday punch in our You’re Doing It All Wrong video. It’s a flexible recipe that will work with nearly any base spirit if you don’t have genever.

What to buy: Though it’s also infused with botanicals like juniper, genever (a.k.a. Holland or Dutch gin) is a maltier, funkier relative of gin that mixes very well in cocktails. Anchor Distilling and Bols make good versions that can be found at any well-stocked liquor store.


  1. 1Pour the genever, orange curaçao, simple syrup, and bitters into a punch bowl and stir to combine.
  2. 2Add the sparkling water, lemon juice, and sparkling wine or Champagne just before serving.
  3. 3Place a large block of ice in the punch and stir gently just to combine.
  4. 4Grate nutmeg over top of the punch, and garnish with pineapple slices and star anise.
