Punch Bowl Drinks For The Holidays

Punch refers to a wide assortment of drinks, both non-alcoholic and alcoholic, most containing fruit or fruit juice. The drink was introduced from India by sailors and employees of the British East India Company to the United Kingdom in the early seventeenth century, and from there its use spread to other countries. Punch is usually served at parties in large, wide bowls, known as punch bowls.
