The Poor Richard cocktail is a festive blend of hard cider, sweet vermouth, cranberry cordial, and lemon juice along with grated nutmeg. Its low-proof and simply made format makes the punch variation ideal for holiday entertaining.
Created by Paul Calvert and Greg Best of Atlanta’s Ticongeroga Club. The original Poor Richard recipe calls for cranberry cordial instead of grenadine, as listed. For those who wish to make the effort, simply boil down equal parts cranberry juice and sugar to make your own cranberry cordial.
Large Batch Variation Serves 6-7 * 7 oz SWEET VERMOUTH * 3.5 oz LEMON JUICE * 3.5 oz GRENADINE * 1 750 ml bottle DRY CIDER
