OG recipe was for 4, we divided by 4 to serve one. Add all the ingredients to a drink mixer tin and roll (pour back and forth a few times) with another drink mixer tin to combine the ingredients. Divide the contents evenly between the two tins. Add 12 ounces of crushed ice and 4 to 6 “agitator” cubes to each of the two tins. With each tin, flash blend and open pour with gated finish into the serving bowl. Float a few lemon and lime slices on the punch for garnish. #blend #ontherocks
