Easy Party Punch Recipes

Updated on August 23, 2013

Punch may have come from the word puncheon, a cast made to hold liquids, such as beer. The word may also have come from the Hindu word pantsh, which means five. What does five have to do with anything? British expatriates in India in the 17th century made a beverage consisting of five ingredients: tea, water, sugar, lemon juice and a fermented sap called arrack.

Regardless of the history or origin, punches of all kinds are an expected beverage at many of today’s social gatherings. If you want to entertain at home or you’re an aspiring bartender or just wants to experiment, here are some exciting and refreshing recipes for you to try for any occasion.
