This week we are making some punch!



Sir Charles Punch
Author: Here’s How, 1941
  • 1 tsp granulated sugar
  • 1 wineglass port
  • 1/2 wineglass brandy
  • 1/2 wineglass curacao
  1. Half fill a large tumbler with shaved ice, then add sugar, port, brandy and curacao. Stir well with a spoon, ornament top with slices of orange, pineapple and split grapes.

We obviously cut down on the measurements of this one, because who is going to drink all that? And our ice melted.


But this smelled really good. It would be great at a party!




The Verdict: Fantastic

From The Tasting Notes –

It’s not really a surprise that brandy goes well with port, but the curacao and the sliced fruit really enhances the flavor of the “punch”.  It was syrupy and sweet and very much a punch, and I’m not sure it was the best use of late bottled vintage port. Maybe a tawny would be a better match. But this was good and we will be making this again!
