Another oldie-but-goodie from Jamie Boudreau of Canon, Seattle, found in the writings of Jerry Thomas from 1862. This punch is great for a long evening—the light and effervescent flavors will deepen and get richer as the punch is allowed to develop.

Note: To make a large ice block, freeze water in a Tupperware container overnight.
