Beaman in love

Office Party Punch or "Beamanís Nectar"
Episode: Santaís Got a Brand New Bag

This is actually an old Philadelphia potion known as "Fish House Punch," but Iím sure itís drifted down D.C. way. One cup of this and Beaman might propose to Mrs. Marsden! Careful, itís potent, but very festive! (And yes, in the show they are drinking eggnog, but this is too good to leave out!)

2 cups fresh-squeezed lemon juice (approximately 12 lemons)
3/4 cup superfine sugar
A block or ring of ice that fits in your punch bowl
1 1/2 quarts brandy
1 pint peach brandy
1 pint dark rum
1 1/2 quarts carbonated water (seltzer)

In a large punch bowl (holding at least 5-6 quarts), mix the lemon juice with the superfine sugar until the sugar is dissolved. Then add the block or ring of ice. (See the recipe for "Family-Style Fruit Punch" for detailed directions for making a fancy ice ring.)

To the punch bowl, add the brandy, peach brandy, rum and carbonated water. Stir gently. Serve in small punch cups. Makes about 40 servings.
