25 Days of Christmas Cocktails, Day 7: Holiday Grog

Holiday party season is upon us and today's cocktail is perfect for a crowd. Holiday Grog, with its double dose of rum and plenty of fresh lime juice, is as breezy to put together as it is to sip. Get a batch simmering on the stove, drop a ladle in, stack the punch glasses on the counter and let your thirsty guests do the rest!

22 1/2 oz. dark rum
22 1/2 oz. aged rum
20 oz. lime juice
15 oz. demerara syrup
60 oz. water
3 cinnamon sticks
Tools: crockpot (optional), ladle
Glass: punch or mug
Garnish: cinnamon stick

Add all ingredients to a large pot and bring to a boil. Turn the heat to low to keep the mixture warm while serving or transfer to a crockpot on low. Ladle into warmed mugs or punch glasses and serve.
