Best Punch, August 2011
One drink is good; a bowl of booze that serves ten is better. Our favorite contribution to the nouveau punch trend comes from the Spare Room, the Hollywood Roosevelt's salute to sipping and gaming. Enliven your drowsy checkers match with the Late Checkout tequila punch—a communal take on the city's ubiquitous Medicina Latina (minus the smoky mescal). Lime and ginger conspire to provide the necessary kick; Cointreau and raw cane sugar sweeten the deal.
