Paradise Punch

  • SERVINGS: Makes about 20 drinks

According to Wayne Curtis's 2006 book And a Bottle of Rum, the English made punch in India as early as 1673. From there, sailors took the drink "along trade routes, to Europe and on to the New World." On the way, "an astonishing number of variations surfaced."
