TT Test Kitchen Tip: The tradition of serving a signature punch at large gatherings dates back to the 1700s. Especially common at formal balls, the potent tipples were typically composed of rum, sugar and fruit juice and had names such as Planter's Punch, Tradd Alley Punch and St. Cecilia Punch. Our take on this centuries-old ritual includes sweet tea in the mix, but it's no less robust than its Low Country forbearers.
TT Test Kitchen Tip: Rum is a classic addition to traditional Southern punch, but feel free to swap in bourbon for another take.
