Like any well established thing, you likely have some ideas and feelings around punch, the easy to serve and large batched cocktails served in pretty bowls. Past punches may not have delighted you and you may be reluctant to try a new, updated punch recipe. Or maybe, your signature punch was so central to your big life gatherings like baby showers of your sisters and Sunday lunches after church on Easter that you don't want to mess with a good thing. Either way, I implore you to re-visit punch with a new perspective because this punch recipe has the potential to make hosting easy, your buffet table beautiful, and is easily the most communal of drinking styles. To gather around a punch bowl is a pretty good thing.
