Anh and Chi’s Warming Winter Punch Is Literally on Fire, and You Need to Try It

Punch season is upon us, folks! Our winter gatherings are made all the more festive with a bowl loaded with spirits, fruit, sugar and tea to be shared in good company. Lucky for us, Main Street’s award-winning Vietnamese restaurant, Anh and Chi, always features a seasonally rotating punch on their drinks menu. This year, the winter recipe is filled with rum-friendly warming spices — perfect for dark days like these. Aged rum, pineapple, passion fruit, cinnamon, five spice dram, citrus and tea are combined in a teapot and topped with flaming fruit and a sprinkle of freshly-grated nutmeg. Seen above and below (as concocted by bartender Vanessa Coupar) it’s as beautifully fragrant as it is delicious, and you need to try it!
