Fish House Punch

Created in the American colony, and later sovereign state, of Schuylkill (pronounced Skoo-kull) in what is now Pennsylvania in 1732. The main draw was a club called the Schuylkill Fishing Company where everyone fished, ate and drank. Fish House Punch was enjoyed there by the likes of George Washington and the Marquis de Lafayette.

The original recipe makes enough for an entire bowl. This is the reduced version for 2 drinks.
