Friday Frock and Fizz

I worked out of Miami last week and enjoyed every single second of the 75+ degree weather. Boy oh boy is it cold in New York City. What are your plans for the next few days? I’m looking forward to a low-key-absolutely-no-travel weekend with a minimal agenda. Save for dinner with dear friends, yoga class, favorite books, and a sip or two of Bumble Brown Punch.



The addition of dark rum will immediately offer comfort and warmth, especially when you are feeling the winter chill. Make it at home like this:

  • 2 cups water
  • 1/4 teaspoon allspice
  • 1 teaspoon grated nutmeg
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 4 cardamom pods, cracked
  • 1 apple sliced
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 3 bottles honey amber lager
  • 9 oz rum
  • Add the water, allspice, nutmeg, cinnamon sticks, cardamom pods, apple slices and brown sugar to a large saucepan set over medium heat. Stir frequently to dissolve the sugar.
  • Let the mixture reach a slight boil, turn the heat to low, and simmer for 10 minutes. Add the lager and rum allowing to heat, but not to boil. Remove spices. Pour into (six) glasses and add apple slices.

Regular JBD’ers, you know about my adoration of the CHRIS BENZ brand. He recently collaborated with Anthropologie and the Mia Shirtdress seems like a fitting match to a classy, spiced punch. Cheers!
