Top 10 St George’s Day drinks23rd April, 2013 by Andy Young
The use of punch as a word for a drink was first recorded in British documents in 1632, and within 40 years other documents make reference to “punch houses”.
A punch cup is traditionally served before a hunting party departs in England and is now commonly served at many quintessentially English events like garden parties plus cricket and tennis matches. Punch cups are generally lower in content than other more traditional punches.
As mentioned Pimm’s started out life as a style of punch, but in order to celebrate St George’s Day, why not make your own punch cup? The drink is usually made with wine, cider, sloe gin or liqueurs as the base and include a variety of fruit juices or soft drinks and St George flags as decoration.
