punch in the best traditions of our house?
Would you like some punch, Mr. Ryder?
There is nothing better than rum punch at this time of day. ”
“Of course, with pleasure,” said Ryder.

"The obstinate bride" C. Coulter.

“Ah, Mr. Ryder, how I would like to join you and try this wonderful rum punch,” I involuntarily thought while reading these lines. It’s an amazing thing - writers and poets from all countries once devoted as much warm words to the punch as, probably, to no other drink. For example, take Pushkin: “And the punch is blue flame.” He, apparently, was also a true connoisseur of punch. What can I say, the mere name of this drink is so seductive that you immediately want to definitely try it. It seemed to be hiding some mystery, as well as a promise to reveal with every new sip its secrets to everyone who tastes it. Where does such an unusual name come from? How and when was this magical drink born, which until now has not lost its admirers?

It turns out that a wonderful punch is an ancient Indian hot drink made from five main components: rum, wine, honey (or sugar), water, tea (or fruit juice) and spices, most often it was cinnamon or clove. Nowadays, such strict rules are no longer adhered to, making some changes to the preparation of punch. By the way, the name itself - punch - also indicates the number of ingredients, because in Sanskrit it means “five”. In Russia, this fiery drink of joy gained particular popularity in the 18th century, and in the 19th it was already well known and loved among the Russian intelligentsia. But at the same time, the punch was available to ordinary people. Going well with heavy hearty snacks, it was simply indispensable during big holidays. They drank and still drink punch not only hot, but also cold. However, in essence, it should, of course, warm.

But should we start to “punch”, as our ancestors said in the 18th century, which meant drinking punch in a pleasant, cheerful company. But first you need to cook it properly. Believe me, at home, even someone who hasn’t done this punch will cook a punch, his recipe is so simple. Punches are hot and cold, alcoholic and non-alcoholic. It is customary to prepare hot alcoholic punch as follows: first, sugar is dissolved in hot water, juice, spices are added, and only then - rum or cognac. It is necessary to act precisely in this sequence and not vice versa. You can’t pour hot water into cognac or rum, because of this they lose their essential and aromatic substances, which will negatively affect the taste of the drink you are preparing. The prepared punch is heated to 60-70 ° C, after which it is poured into glasses or cooled if this type of punch is served cold.
If, for example, you decide to cook a non-alcoholic punch, add tea instead of alcohol. The juice base must be heated, and then add fruit syrup, tea or milk to it. It is often served hot too.

There are a great many recipes for both alcoholic and non-alcoholic punch. Having mastered the recipes easier, feel free to proceed to virtuoso recipes. The rum punch, which has several cooking options, is still considered a classic. The constant component, of course, remains rum. Really unique is the punch with champagne or, as it is also called, “New Year's punch”. All the uniqueness is that it is served hot, but at the same time, surprisingly, he does not lose his fizz.
Try to make the punch yourself, even if you have never cooked it before. After all, even the preparation of this drink is an incomparable magical mystery. And how to make your drink truly refined and divinely delicious, we are ready to tell you our recipes.

Punch History

Now this delicious drink is not uncommon at various events, from social receptions to children's parties. Such a spread is possible because, by the word "punch" they mean a whole set of not only alcoholic, but also non-alcoholic fruit cocktails.

Over the centuries of navigation, the discovery of new lands and the capture of colonies, a lot of exoticism has penetrated into Europe because of the sea, including recipes for original drinks. Basically, the honor of the discovery belonged to the sailors, which means that they certainly could not ignore alcohol.

So rum, whiskey, tequila and of course got to Europe punch. Its recipe was brought from India, where this drink was made on the basis of five ingredients (in ancient Indian this word means “five”) - sugar (honey), wine, rum, tea and spices.

True, it seems that the Indians meant some other components, because they began to add rum to the punch in the Caribbean, and tea apparently at the same time to slightly remove the bitterness of the rum. It is in this part of the world that recipes are created that are popular until our time:

  • planter’s (Planter’s Punch),
  • Barbados Rum (Bajan Rum Punch),
  • Caribbean Rum (Caribbean Rum Punch).

Apparently the planters were trying to somehow improve the taste of rum - moonshine made from cane molasses, which in those days was disgusting.

In general, a great many recipes for making punch have been invented, and what is especially nice: every housewife can quickly come up with a new product available to her. Punch is made on the basis of wine, brandy or just from fruit juices. Add rum, cognac, bourbon, tea, liquors, dark beer, spices, pieces of fruit, honey or other ingredients, depending on the recipe. The main thing is that it be sweet and tasty.

They serve it chilled, hot and even burning. Moreover, this recipe is so original that it has become the hallmark of this drink.

Classic alcohol punch

Among the warming alcoholic cocktails, punch stands out with a pleasant fruity taste.

  1. This alcoholic drink, brought from India to Europe, is prepared on a rum basis, and in some variations on the basis of liquor and wine.
  2. To make your own punch wrong, you have to work hard, because it is simply given even to amateurs and beginners, and the ingredients for it are easy to find in any supermarket.

In such a variety of recipes created over hundreds of years since its invention, it is difficult to find the traditional one. We will figure out how to cook a classic punch, what to use for cooking and how to emphasize the taste nuances of a strong drink.


The idea of ​​punch appeared after a series of American films, where a mandatory attribute of parties is a punch of bright colors in a bowl with soup ladle. It is believed that this drink was invented before the advent of the United States. It is believed that this was done by soldiers from England, who were serving in India, and brought it to their homeland. According to another version, it was invented long before that, and the British East India Company helped it spread around the world. Whoever the discoverer of the punch is, the pleasant taste of his drink pleases us so far. After distribution in Europe, brandy was used as the basis, as a more affordable version of the alcohol component.

The traditional punch has 5 ingredients: rum, sugar, hot water, lemon juice and tea, as well as spices to taste.

  • 350 ml of dark rum
  • 750 ml of hot water
  • 2 tsp brewed tea
  • 3 tbsp Sahara,
  • lemon.

  1. Pour tea leaves with warm water. Insist for 15 minutes. You should get a clear liquid, so remove the leaves by filtering through a fine strainer.
  2. Pour rum there, add sugar. Squeeze out the lemon juice before preparing the drink and add it to the mixture.
  3. Pour into the dishes and cook over low heat for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  4. Serve the punch hot.

Classical is considered serving in large punches, ceramic or porcelain glasses. A glass for mulled wine or grog will also be suitable. Since they are made of thick glass, it will retain heat and the punch will stay hot longer.

Beneficial features

Since at that time rum was available only to wealthy segments of the population, it was replaced with other alcohol. Although by the end of the XVII century. back to the traditional recipe, the word "punch" today is the collective name for cocktails based on rum, grappa, wine, brandy, vodka, claret and even alcohol.

Want to make a classic cocktail, fully complying with the recipe? Then remember a few features.

  • The drink is brewed in enamel dishes, and served in bowls and decanters that hold heat for a long time. If you do not have special glasses for hot drinks, you can replace them with thermomugs or cups made of clay and porcelain.
  • Before pouring water into the rum, add sugar to it and let it cool slightly. The main thing is that the sweetness of the drink should not be excessive, otherwise you will not feel the real taste behind it.
  • Sugar can not only be replaced with honey, but also necessary. Honey contains more nutrients, and its natural sweetness will make the drink more refined.
  • The correct ratio of alcohol to water is 1: 3. That is, 600 ml of cocktail should account for 200 ml of rum.
  • When choosing rum, do not focus on expensive brands, this is considered bad form. They are good without impurities and heat, and in a punch they will not be expressed so clearly, you simply will not notice them. Too cheap rum is also not suitable, because it is likely that it will be fake.

If you do not have certain taste affections, light and dark rum types are better for dark. The finished mixture over low heat should be heated to 65-70 ° C - this is the recommended punch serving temperature.

A strong tea is perfect tea, and leaf tea is ideal. Take a packaged look only if you are sure of its naturalness. The flavor in tea with impurities, most likely, will not be felt after the smell of alcohol and spices, so it will not spoil the drink, but will not bring any benefits.

Spices are best used as a whole rather than ground, although they are interchangeable. Using a stick of cinnamon, a bud of cloves and an inflorescence of star anise, you will get a lighter and more natural taste. Do not overdo it with their quantity, because they can interfere with the taste of rum.

When adding juice of citrus and other fruits, remember that it is better to do them yourself before making a cocktail. Preservatives and flavorings cannot replace naturalness. Do not choose soft berries, apples, etc., because under the influence of high temperatures they will turn into porridge.

Serve the punch better "clean", without parts of fruits and spices, unless they serve as decoration for the drink. When you mix alcohol with water, it should not be very hot. When diluted with boiling water, it loses taste, and the essential oil evaporates.

Favorable punch qualities

Besides the fact that this drink is tasty, in small quantities it is also healthy, because it enriches with useful microelements.

It warms the body from the inside, so it will be useful to cook it after a long walk on the cold winter streets. With hypothermia, a hot cocktail will become a healing balm for you. It prevents colds.

In the classic recipe, the basis is strong alcoholic drinks - rum, brandy, cognac.

  • They are aged in oak barrels, so they are rich in useful tanning elements.
  • Rum and cognac slow down inflammatory processes, protect the body from unwanted external and internal influences on it.
  • Drink punch to increase appetite, improve blood vessels, soothe muscle pain.
  • Fruits, which are used to decorate and give a special taste, fill the body with vitamins, tone it and improve performance.
  • Nothing prevents to supplement the drink with those berries that are useful to you.
  • Blueberries will improve eyesight, sea buckthorn will reduce susceptibility to infections, and lingonberries will help cope with kidney diseases.

Only this will not be a classic, but your personal recipe.

Remember to be careful about spices if you have an allergic reaction. For the category of people who are forbidden to take alcohol, there are non-alcoholic recipes.

Cold Alcohol Punch

Despite the negative opinion that has developed about alcohol, it has useful properties. Rum in a punch will help to anesthetize the throat with a cold, bring down the temperature and cope with the infection in the body.

  • 1 tbsp warm water
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 40 g of whiskey, bourbon or rum,
  • tea / tea bag made from natural herbs,
  • 1 stick or 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 2 clove buds
  • a pinch of cardamom.

  1. Pour tea in hot water. During colds, it is better to drink soothing chamomile tea, lemon balm, etc. herbs.
  2. Add spices without chopping them. If you use a whole cardamom, be sure to remove the grains from the pod. Infuse tea until the tea leaves have a natural color.
  3. Strain the liquid through a strainer, add honey there. Remember that honey should not be added to boiling water so that it does not lose all the beneficial properties. Therefore, if the tea is too hot, let it cool slightly.
  4. Add rum or another alcoholic beverage to tea. Stir and drink it while it is warm. Wrap yourself in a warm blanket so that you feel hot. The punch should bring down the temperature, and bad substances will leave the body with sweat.

If the punch was made on the basis of herbal tea, it will be much easier to sleep at night, in addition, alcohol will relax the muscles and soothe the discomfort on the mucous membranes. Remember that this is not a panacea for high temperatures, so use medications to bring it down.

The recipe for a classic European punch

After it was brought to Europe, the drink recipe acquired a local flavor and slightly changed. One of the ingredients was red wine, which positively affects the cardiovascular system.

Do not confuse punch with mulled wine, because the wine in the punch is not the basis, but an additional component. Although rum will require half as much as wine, the strength of alcohol will take its toll, and it will be its taste that will dominate. The second difference is that the taste of mulled wine will not be so fruity, because less juice is added there, and it is not recommended to drink hot.

  • a bottle of rum
  • 2 bottles of red wine,
  • 1 liter of water
  • 2 lemons
  • 2 oranges
  • a glass of sugar
  • spices to taste.


  1. Boil the water, put sugar in it and stir until completely dissolved. Leave it to cool to 50 ° C.
  2. Heat the red wine and, when it is almost boiling, add one orange and one lemon, previously sliced ​​in circles or slices. Put spices there.
  3. Squeeze the juice from the remaining citrus fruits and add to the wine. Combine a mixture of wine with citrus fruits and water with sugar in a bowl for a drink.

To serve effectively, place a strainer over the bowl, put a couple of sugar cubes in it, pour rum on top and set it on fire. Under the influence of high temperatures, the sugar begins to melt and, spreading, sets fire to the whole punch.

Pour it into cups in a burning form. Because This drink is not for a feast, but rather for gatherings in a pleasant company, you do not need to prepare a side dish or meat dishes for it. On the table, it will go well with light snacks.

As you can see, preparing punch is a very simple procedure. Even with a set of ingredients, it’s clear that a drink cannot be tasteless. Do not forget about the main rule that makes punch especially tasty: you should drink it savoring it, enjoying it, and always in pleasant company.

How to serve

Punch is served in porcelain, ceramic or earthenware dishes at a temperature of 65 degrees, but there are some punch recipesserved cold. It is impossible to heat it above 65 degrees, since the alcohol added to the drink can evaporate and lose all its taste.

Punch is somewhat reminiscent of sangria, and due to its simple cooking in many countries, it is a traditional party drink with a large number of guests.

The classic punch consists of five main components - rum, hot water, tea and lemon juice, but today there are a lot of recipes and you can use different types of alcohol to make it.
