We’re finally at the infamous Miss Patty’s Founders’ Day Punch! The punch has been mentioned a few times already on the show, but I was saving it for this episode because it’s really the star of the episode—especially with Paris. Drunk Paris is one of my favorite moments in the whole show, so I wanted to pay homage to that scene.
While this is definitely a fancier version of what Miss Patty would serve (someone on my Instagram commented that her punch is probably Kool-Aid and rubbing alcohol, which I think is very likely), I think she would still be a fan of my version. I didn’t go quite to the level where you could remove tar from construction sites with this punch, but I did want it to still have a boozy kick to it. Whether you are serving this at a party, a winter carnival, or a town museum, it will be the perfect drink!
Happy cooking from the Hollow!
