The name of the drink Punch comes from the Hindi word "punch", meaning five.
On the day of the punch, celebrate with the traditional punch drink, which uses five ingredients - alcohol (usually rum or airy drinks), lemon (or other fruits), sugar, water, and tea (or other spices, eg cinnamon).
The punch is served cold or hot, and it is also possible without alcohol.
The source of the punch is in India. He arrived in England by sailors and workers of the British East India Company at the beginning of the 17th century. Later it was distributed to other European countries. The advantage was that when you prepare a large amount and share it, it is cheaper than a regular alcoholic cocktail.
Since then there has been a lot of punch around the world, and it has spread to other countries such as the Caribbean, Korea and Mexico and has become a traditional refreshment at parties served in large large bowls.
