Punch: The Delights (and Dangers) of the Flowing Bowl
An Authoritative, historically informed tribute to the punch bowl, by the James Beard Award-winning author of Imbibe!.
Replete with historical anecdotes, expert observations, notes on technique and ingredients, and of course world-class recipes, Punch will take readers on a celebratory journey into the punch bowl that starts with some very lonely British sailors and swells to include a cast of lords and ladies, admirals, kings, presidents, poets, pirates, novelists, spies, and other colorful characters.
It is a tale only David Wondrich can tell-and it is sure to delight, amuse, and inspire the mixologist and party-planner in everyone.

Review: Punch: The Delights (and Dangers) of the Flowing BowlUser Review - Kathryn - Goodreads
Fantastic book that was equal parts history and recipe. I liked the history and the well researched recipes so much that I immediately began scouring ebay for vintage sets for my next party. Cheers to this book and the wonderful storytelling of David Wondrich! Read full review

Definitely the type of book worth purchasing and my favorite kind of book, where you are running to reference or research something on every page. I think it's time for punch to make a comeback. I'll be seeking out his other books. Read full review
