HUNGRY's Holiday Kitchen: Ginger Beer Punch
2 cups unpeeled fresh ginger, roughly chopped
2 cups sugar
6 cups water
12 ounces Black Grouse Blended Whisky
8 ounces fresh lemon juice
4 ounces Tawny Port
4 ounces ginger syrup
2 750-milliliter bottles of Lindemans Peche Lambic Beer
1 large block of ice
2 lemons, sliced for garnish
Put ginger in a food processor and pulse until finely chopped. Add ginger, sugar and water to a large pot, bring to a boil then reduce to a simmer and cook for one hour or until the mixture has thickened into a syrup. Strain syrup through cheesecloth or a fine mesh sieve and refrigerate to cool.
In a large punch bowl, with a large block of ice, add all the ingredients except the beer and stir to combine. Top with beer and garnish punch with lemon slices.
