Steamboat Bill’s is a casual restaurant that serves a great goodtime and excellent food with parchment paper and plastic baskets.

Your punch is served in a plastic cup with no embellishments.

I decided to class it up a bit for our ‘at home’ version with a real glass and a simple garnish. I also had to figure out their recipe by remembering the taste. This is close. Might even be better. I’m pretty proud of my version.
