Recipe by Busters friend

A winter punch of distinction from The New York Times who notes this recipe is an adaptation from Willy Shine and Aisha Sharpe; whose consulting company, Contemporary Cocktails, "assembles innovative drink menus for high-volume establishments." This punch needs 24 hours to infuse after mixing so plan ahead. There are many malbec grape wines available - often at prices that make this punch very affordable. The cachaca should be unaged white unless you are feeling flush. if so go for the aged amber. I plan to try this mixture as a granita, a potent amuse-bouche, so I may have to reduce the cachaca so it will freeze into nice granules.
