Cocktail Recipe: Fish House Punch With Rum, Peach And Brandy

An old-school punch that's cool again

Nearly 300 years old now, this recipe fell out of favor as ingredients like Wedderburn- and Plummer-style Jamaican rums and peach brandy fell to the wayside. Thanks to classicists like Smith & Cross importer Eric Seed and craft distillers, such as Peach Street in Colorado, the Fish House Punch can be prepared in all its old-school glory.
