    I understand the sentiment of the post and the recipe. But I have to be honest and say that tailgating punches are a good opportunity to check out the lower end of the bourbon price spectrum. I’d suggest Basil’s to add a little kick to lemonade and forget about the beer.

    Gotta admit I agree– I’d probably go for Benchmark with this. It’s basically a “Skip and Go Naked” or “Beer-A-Rita”, but with bourbon instead of vodka or tequila.
