RECIPE

Swine Wine Punch

Marisa Chafetz / Supercall

Punch is a Southern staple with a long history—from Martha Washington to the Chatham Artillery, it seems that nearly every household and social group has their own recipe. For beverage director Patrick Kish of Charleston, South Carolina barbecue joint Swig & Swine, using crowd-pleasing Cheerwine for their house recipe was a no-brainer. "I wanted to make a punch-style drink that would be a long-lasting favorite for everybody,” Kish says. Along with Cheerwine, Kish adds Sierra Mist, sparkling wine and strawberry moonshine to create an approachable punch that pairs just as well with smoked meats as it does with a lazy summer afternoon.
