5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Garrett Peck on June 2, 2011
Format: Hardcover
Dan Searing's "Punch Bowl" is an absolutely beautiful book. A bar owner by trade and historian by hobby, Searing has assembled four centuries of punch recipes, from historic bartending guides like Jerry Thomas's Bartender's Guide and Trader Vic's, to nationally recognized bartenders today.

Searing provides a brief history of punch and handy advice on how to assemble the best punch you can with fresh ingredients. His recipes are easy to follow and his tips right on. "Placing a flaming glass of punch into the hands of your guests makes for a wonderful spectacle, but the drinkers need to be warned clearly that they must blow out the flame before tasting the contents of their glasses," he writes before the Green Tea Punch.

The book is organized by the foundation spirit, from rum (considered a classic from colonial days), to bourbon and brandy, all the way to tea-based punches. Beautiful photographs of punches and punch bowls adorn the book's pages. Punch is crowd-pleasing and easy to make for your next party - just make it advance and let the guests serve themselves. You can then spend less time in the kitchen, and more time entertaining.

If you know anything about Dan Searing, you know this book would have to be good. The man is thorough, insightful, and filled with sparks of curiosity. So is the book. It does not disappoint.
I received my copy as a special gift from my wife and am curious if other buyers found the bound-in ribbon bookmark placed on page 70.
