1 jigger Punsch

Ingredient: Punsch

Also Known As:  Arrack Punch, Caloric Punch, Punch or Punsch What it is:  Liqueur

Punsch is a traditional liqueur in Sweden and to a lesser extent some other Nordic countries produced from arrack, neutral spirits, sugar, water, and various flavorings. Arrack, originally a strong Indian liquor, was imported from Java (Indonesia) and became the base ingredient for making punsch. Although they both refer to certain kinds of mixed beverages with liquor as a base ingredient, traditional Swedish Punsch is different from Punch.
