If I was hosting a party for my birthday, which is later this month, it would be an all-out daytime extravaganza. I’m thinking brunch meets summer patio party.

Food would be served either on a stick or on a small plate – I like to graze. Decorations would be handmade, most likely out of paper. Even though it would be daytime, we would still utilize candles and string lights. Because, well, it’s my party and I’ll light it if I want to.

When hosting your own birthday party, keep things simple. Also, make sure that the day is full of things you love. Instead of worrying about pleasing everyone else, just focus on having a good time. Your friends and family will have fun if they know their host is having a great birthday!

PAMA Sunrise Punch

This delicious punch recipe is perfect for my dream summer birthday party. Not only is it easy to make, but it uses some of my garden’s bounty of basil. Also, it can be made in large batches or easily made in individual portions.

First, break out your muddler. If you don’t have a muddler, that’s okay – grab a spoon and use the flat side to muddle your basil. For big batches, I recommend muddling right in your pitcher. For individual drinks, muddle in a cocktail shaker or glass. (I’ve shown both ways)

Then, assemble your drink. Pour the PAMA on top of the muddle basil, then the orange juice and follow that with the soda water.

I don’t like to add ice to the pitcher because I don’t like when my drinks are watered down. Serving this at a party, I would probably keep an ice bucket nearby and fill up glasses with ice as needed. I like to strain my drink so that the basil stays in the pitcher – not necessary but my preference.

I also keep a carafe of OJ nearby. Why, you ask? So that I can splash a little orange juice on top to make this drink look just like the sunrise it is named for.

I love using liqueurs because they have such an intense flavor. Pomegranate is great because it is tart and sweet at the same time. Plus I like to think that has a ton of health benefits that offset the alcohol that I am consuming. What a great easy drink. One that I can drink quite a few of. The basil adds a nice twist to the flavor profile! Thanks for linking up to #SaucySaturday!
