A punch refers to all the beverage recipes that usually contain a fruit juice, some spices, and liquor depending on the guests. Not many of us know that the word 'punch' has actually been derived from an ancient East Indian beverage recipe which used to be made with panch (meaning five) ingredients namely arrack, tea (or other spices), sugar, water, and lemon. The British sailors took fancy to this refreshing beverage and soon spread the recipe to the seaport taverns. Thereafter, the original recipe has undergone several variations.
