Garadain's Recipe Book part 1

Greetings!  While standing in my kitchen and silently cursing the laws of physics for not allowing the ice in the cans of apple juice I was making to melt faster, I decided it would be a great idea to share some of my favorite recipes for simple, fun things that can make any party fancier and any get together that much more special.  I'll do these in a series of installments, and I'll present you with the recipe first so you can try to guess what it is we're making while we're making it!  So come take the journey with me as we embark on a quest of culinary magic.

First of all, we'll need to gather our ingredients.  You'll need:


Next, you'll need to gather up your hardware.  You'll need:

A nice, fancy punch bowl*

*Note: If you don't own a nice, fancy punch bowl, you will need one.  The fancier the better, as it will increase the quality.  If you want to splurge on the fanciest punch bowl money can buy, you can go here:|1287991011&searchSize=30&searchPage=1&searchNodeID=1038576|1287991011&searchBinNameList=subjectbin%2Cprice%2Ctarget_com_primary_color-bin%2Ctarget_com_size-bin%2Ctarget_com_brand-bin&frombrowse=0 

Now that we have our ingredients, let's begin!   First, you're going to chill your beer overnight.  For those of you that waited until the last possible minute to begin this, you're fucked.  Go ahead and carefully pour your beer into the punch bowl, being careful as you pour to not create too much of a head on it and preserve as much carbonation as possible.  Technique as important, because there's nothing worse than having beer poured by someone who doesn't know what the fuck they're doing.

And voila!  Have you guessed what we made yet?  That's right: Beer Punch!  A full punch bowl is enough for roughly 1 adult, so acquire more punch bowls and beer as necessary depending on how many guests you are serving.  Don't forget to use fancy, decorative cups to accentuate the full flavor of your beer punch, otherwise you're just going to look like a jackass drinking beer out of a punch bowl.

If you're a fan of imported beers that are typically served at room temperature, simply don't put them in the refrigerator overnight and then follow the rest of the steps as listed.  This is also an alternative for the dick wipes that didn't read the recipe in advance and didn't chill their beer overnight.

Thanks for reading, and stay tuned for my next installment of Garadain's Recipes!
