Lombardino’s Pisco Punch
There’s nothing more stressful than having to staff the bar while entertaining friends and family during the holidays. James Lombardino, head bartender at Wallflower, has the perfect solution, punch! So invest in a punch bowl, whip up his signature drink before your guests arrive, and viola! Delicious and refined drinks for everyone without a shaker in sight.
Lombardino’s Pisco Punch, currently available on the menu at Wallflower, is an amped up version of traditional pisco punch—with the addition of cinnamon and clove for a bit of holiday flair.
