50 eggs Beverage Director, Joshua Holliday, provides his favorite, autumnal Bourbon based Thanksgiving or Holiday Punch called the Turkey Leg.

After cooking the turkey, stuffing and side dishes, the last thing that anyone wants to worry about is bartending or serving cocktails. This year, prep your libations in advance and save yourself the stress of being an expert multi-tasker! Make this holiday all the more festive with seasonal flavors like cranberries and cinnamon to accompany your meal.

Fun fact: The best part about serving punch, is that it also doubles as a beautiful centerpiece. Cheers!
