Friday Night Cocktail: Punch!
My plan for today had been to review the inimitable David Wondrich‘s new book, Punch: The Delights (and Dangers) of the Flowing Bowl. Unfortunately, due to slow shipping on the part of the online vendor I bought from, I still haven’t received my copy, even though it was released 10 days ago. (And I ordered it 11 days ago.) So instead, I’m just going to whet your appetite with links to this great profile of Wondrich in the New York Times and the comprehensive punch thread on eGullet, and share a photo of the punch I served at my Christmas party last year, made to the recipe in a previous Wondrich book, Killer Cocktails. Stay tuned for an actual review of the book… whenever it sees fit to arrive.
