what better way to wash that delicious Christmas food down than a tasty bowl of Christmas punch, placed right in the middle of the table?
The word punch comes from the Sanskrit pañca, meaning five – whence the five different ingredients in the original recipe.
After pañca was imported to England, the recipe changed around slightly, in that different alcoholic bases were being used for the drink, such as wines or brandy.
The modern punch is usually made with rum, but there are a lot of variations depending on the part of the world we’re talking about. So don't be afraid to experiment!
Punch is supposed to be highly fruity, most recipes indicating that some fruit slices should be left floating in the bowl. For a Christmas punch, orange slices are mandatory!
The secret to it is to add as many festive-type ingredients as you can think of while preserving a special flavor and not turning it too alcoholic.
