The Kraken has a chocolate richness to it that pair quite nicely with the Mandarine Napolean, a unique orange liqueur made with cognac and mandarin orange peels and aged for a minimum of three years. The seasonal citrus brightens the drink up with the neccesary acidity to cut through the sweetness resulting in a balanced and nicely spiced punch-style cocktail. This would be great to replicate on a larger scale for parties. To learn more about punches, check out David Wondrich's newest book Punch:The Delights and Dangers of the Flowing Bowl.
