Drinks editor Susy Atkins has created the perfect punch to get the party going; give this palate-rousing gin punch a go and watch the crowds drawn in. It can easily double or triple in size to serve a larger crowd, too.
4tbsp ginger sugar syrup from a jar of stem ginger
Grated zest and juice 2 limes, plus extra wedges
320ml, or more to taste, chilled peppery ginger beer (such as Fentimans)
Half-fill a punch bowl with ice. Pour over the gin, Chambord, pomegranate juice, ginger syrup and lime juice, then stir. Add a few lime wedges, then top up with ginger beer (taste and add a bit more if you like).
Ladle the drink into 8 punch glasses or heavy tumblers, making sure everyone gets lots of ice. Garnish with lime zest.
You can easily double or triple the quantities to serve a crowd.
