Kumquat-Pomegranate Punch Recipe

Come Party With Me: Vegetarian Fall Feast — Drinks

When hosting a dinner party, it's fun to introduce guests to interesting ingredients and exotic flavors. Keep the majority of the menu familiar, then throw in one unexpected element in the form of a specialty cocktail that highlights kumquats. My friends and family have little experience with the miniature citrus fruit, but they'll love to sample it in a vodka pomegranate punch. Part of the punch can be made the day before, then at the dinner, all you have to do is stir in the juice. Don't skip the pomegranate seed garnish; they provide a festive jewel-like quality to the drink.
