This is not a punch. “It’s a giant cocktail, basically,” says Raul Abrantes of The Stinger at the InterContinental hotel in NYC. Made with sparkling rosé, vodka, peach liqueur, lemon juice and honey, it’s a party-sized refreshment that everyone will love. At The Stinger, Abrantes makes the cocktail with the hotel’s own honey, sourced from rooftop beehives, so be sure to use the best you can find if you don’t happen to have access to your own apiary.
