Apparently punch came from India… initially called ‘panch,’ it was an alcoholic drink with some sugar, lemon, water, and tea added. I guess the sailors of the British East India Company enjoyed it and word got around (as around as it could get for the 1600s).
Now we have all sorts of punches available. My favorite? This Raspberry Fizz Punch! Check it out!
Today is also the original anniversary of the World’s Largest Chicken Dance, although I’ve heard this record has been broken many times since, either way… drink some punch and teach your kids how to do the chicken dance. After all, it is National Chicken Month and no child should grow up without doing the chicken dance at least once… although, this may be the punch talking.
