This Preserved Pimm’s Punch video made by Graham Case, mixologist of Blackberry Farm, caught my attention when researching the locale of Kelly Clarkson’s recent wedding. The Tennessee farm is at the top of my list of places in the South that I have yet to travel to, but plan on making my way there soonest.
The punch cocktail looks delicious, and the addition of Champagne at the end punches up the celebratory factor. I love that Case also explains the preservation process to get a summer favorite transitioned into fall.
