No parking lot bash is complete without a tasty beverage. And no matter what local team you're rooting for, it's worth packing the ingredients to make this killer creation courtesy of Philly bartender Marie Piraino. The best part? It's perfect for batches, meaning the kind of quantities needed to keep the party going into the 4th quarter and beyond.

Thyme to Fly

  • 5oz simple syrup
  • 2pt of apple cider
  • 5oz of Cynar
  • 30oz of Bulleit Rye
  • Sprigs of thyme for garnish
  • Cinnamon sticks for garnish


  • This is a super easy punch that is refreshing and great when it gets a bit chilly out. Just combine all ingredients and throw it in anything to bring with you to a game. A bucket works great. When you arrive, put the mixture in a punch bowl and fill with large ice.
