History of the punch and where to taste it this christmas

Food & Drink
Punch is, without a doubt, the favorite drink of Mexicans during the Christmas season. One of the most delicious remedies that accompanies the arrival of winter. It is common to think that the origin of this famous drink is Mexican; however, ponche is a European introduction to Mexican gastronomy, brought by New Spain.

The recipe of the Mexican Ponche is unique in the world even though this drink was not created in Mexico. Its acceptance and adaptation occurred not only in Mexican territory, but also in several South American countries. However, the recipes vary, since the ponche prepared in other places may contain milk, eggs and cloves (ingredients that we do not taste in Mexico). In addition, the fruits used in the preparation are different according to each region. So it all depends on the land and the season to give it flavor and touch.
