Let’s admit it, we all love punches. Whether on a hot summer’s day, or at a grand Christmas dinner, a punch is irreplaceable. But, how many of us know that the punch dates back to the 17th century? British sailors would often pour themselves a drink of rum, lemon and spices to satiate their thirst. Later, different variations of the same concoction became synonymous with celebrations. Some would give the alcohol a miss, some would use a variety of different spirits. But, what’s a holiday season party without some punch? And, what’s a fun party without some spiked punch?

It’s easy-breezy and can be made in advance, so that you don’t have to sweat it out during the party. Could it be more appealing?
