Midnight Cowboy's Fish House Punch

[Photograph: Melody Fury]

The Fish House Punch was first concocted at a gentlemen's fishing club in Philadelphia. The original recipe called for peach brandy. In this modern version, Brian Dressel of Midnight Cowboy in Austin, Texas replaces peach brandy with a mix of peach liqueur and cognac, and tames the rum-forward punch with green tea, maraschino liqueur, and citrus.

Note: To make simple syrup, combine 1 cup water with 1 cup sugar in a small saucepan and heat over medium heat, stirring constantly, until sugar is dissolved. Cool before using. Simple syrup will keep in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
