A punch only in that Port would be considered a wine element, and water is provided through dilution during shaking. This is made as a single cocktail, although could be served as a punch over large chunks of ice with seltzer water added.
1½ oz brandy
1 oz ruby Port
½ oz lime juice
¼ oz Small Hand Foods Pineapple Gum Syrup
¼ oz Small Hand Foods Grenadine
1 dash Angostura bitters
Shake all ingredients vigorously in mixing tins and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a lime twist.
