aa2I think it is high time that we make punch popular again. When I watch old Christmas movies everyone is enjoying a fine holiday punch. I can’t remember the last time I went to a party where there was punch.

Anyway, I found the perfect punch to roll out for Christmas Eve – the Under-The-Mistletoe Punch I found from the fine folks at Bon Appetit magazine.

About the recipe for Under-The-Mistletoe Punch from Bon Appetit magazine:

“This punch recipe easily scales down by half, or even all the way to festive drinks for two.”

The Kipton Mixologist Box from Ralph Lauren:

“Filled with iconic pieces from the Polo Bar, Ralph Lauren’s first restaurant in New York City, this mixologist box is the ultimate tool kit for cocktail congnoscenti. Included are equestrian-inspired barware essentials such as a hand-cut crystal decanter with sandblasted polo players and four matching double-old-fashioned glasses, as well as a silver-plated brass jigger, a bottle opener, and a nut bowl.
