Fish House Punch

It’s Friday and it’s a day to talk about fish.
From the gentlemen anglers of Schuylkill Fishing Company in Pennsylvania comes this delightful yet mouth awakening punch. Believed being served as early as 1732, this tradition continues today as members gather to wash down their catch or sometimes barbecue with this spirited lemon punch.

    I want to be hooked to an IV bag with this dripping directly into my veins! I'm seriously thinking about running out into holiday shopping madness to the liquor store to get some peach brandy to make a small batch of this just for me today to celebrate getting my kitchen back to normal. Finally got the last of the dishes out away! Cheers, Drick!

    Oh my, this drink looks so yummy and I just love the flavor combos. Although I just had breakfast, I might just have to whip up a batch for the game today! Can't wait to try it! Cheers, cher!
