A Sip of Cocktail History

Jumping into a new(ish) cocktail history project with my master mixologist friend George! Did you know that the first cocktails were punches sloshingly sipped by the Royal Navy? Adapted from the Hindi panch, meaning “five.” Why five? Spirit, spice, water, citrus, sugar. The five basic elements of your quality spiked punch.

Pictured above: the “Butter Sac.” Complete with butter, brown sugar, spices, and warm brandy. Nice for this cold, rainy weather we’re having!
