Planter’s Punch

See the RecipeMelanie Acevedo

It's thought that punch came from the Hindi word panch, meaning "five," and, in fact, punches originally were made with five ingredients: lime juice, sugar, spices, water and a fermented sap called arrack. British sailors used to drink this concoction to ward off scurvy in the 1600s, but luckily for us, the practice evolved into something far more recreational.
