Mezcal • Sour
Excessive Celebration Punch

The perfect marriage of a Salty Dog and a Shandy, this make-ahead, party-sized cocktail will surely be a hit with the agave fans at your game day celebration. Light and refreshing, with a backbone of smoky mezcal spice, the Excessive Celebration Punch gets an effervescent topper of grapefruit soda and beer. A perfect accompaniment to crunchy, cheesy snacks, the mix of salt, sour and sweet is best with a heaping plate of nachos or spicy dip. Just remember to keep your excessive frustration in check when your guests drink all of the punch before you get a second cup.
