Fish House Punch is a famous tipple dating back to 1732. I first came upon it in Dave Wondrich's book Punch, and was recently offered a cup at a New Year's Day celebration. When I asked the bartender what was in it, he replied, "What isn't in it?"
With thoughts of Long Island iced tea whirling through my mind, I hesitantly raised the glass to my lips. To my surprise this cup of punch was strong, but balanced and warmed me right to the core; a lovely treat on a 12-degree day.
