Product Details


“Wildly entertaining and fantastically instructive…”

“Most punches have fascinating back stories – at least they do when Wondrich is in charge.”
The New York Times Book Review

“Mr. Wondrich’s noble effort to restore Punch’s good name offers sound advice on the basics of Punch-making along with a variety of vintage recipes.”
The Wall Street Journal

“A lively, fascinating history of punch[…]. Wondrich is a tremendously witty writer.”
The New Yorker

“Wondrich peels punch’s image off the sticky fraternity house floor and reinstates it into the more dignified annals of drinking tradition.”
The Boston Globe

“It’s fair to say there’s nobody in the country who knows more about drinking than David Wondrich.”
New York Magazine

Punch stays true to the antique, but by no means staid, spirit of its old timey, black-and-white-etching-illustrated subject matter, while somehow managing to keep current, relevant, and fresh. […] A rollickingly fun read.”

“[Wondrich’s] interest in history runs as deep as his thirst for beverage experiences on the banks of the mainstream[…].”
The New York Times

“Punch lovers are in luck[…]. These aren’t the fruity, simplistic punches of recent times. They’re complex, subtle concoctions….”
The Oregonian

“The best part of the book isn’t the history-it’s the 40-plus detailed recipes of how to make your very own authentic Punch.”
The New York Post
