It’s National Punch Day!
A day honoring the hole punch? Honoring the art of throwing hands? Nope, today we honor the drink: punch. The jungle juice. The sugar bomb.
According to legend:
The word punch is a loanword from Hindi panch (meaning five). Originally, punch was made with five ingredients: alcohol, sugar, lemon, water and tea or spices. It was called paantsch.
I drank so much punch as a kid, my body stopped processing the red dye. Now, I can't drink it without a stomach ache. People put way too much sugar in it.
There is even a strain of marijuana named Punch. Purple Punch, Cherry Punch. I guess it makes you crave punch?
