Potato latkes—often served with applesauce—is an iconic Hanukkah dish. Without getting too literal, here’s a cocktail interpretation of that seasonal favorite. Serve in a punch bowl, with a platter of fresh latkes nearby, of course.
Add all ingredients to a punch bowl large enough to hold at least 10 cups of liquid.
Stir to combine.
Add the block of ice, and stir again to chill.
Garnish with lemon slices studded with cloves.
To serve, ladle into punch cups or tea cups.
*Punch bowl ice block:
Pour water into disposable tin loaf pans (fill about halfway) and freeze overnight. When ready to serve punch, peel off the tins. Alternatively, use a bowl instead of a tin pan to create rounded ice. Run the bowl briefly under hot water to release the ice mold.
