Reviews

"Wildly entertaining and fantastically instructive..."
-Bookforum

"Most punches have fascinating back stories - at least they do when Wondrich is in charge."
-The New York Times Book Review "Mr. Wondrich's noble effort to restore Punch's good name offers sound advice on the basics of Punch-making along with a variety of vintage recipes."
-The Wall Street Journal "A lively, fascinating history of punch[...]. Wondrich is a tremendously witty writer."
-The New Yorker "Wondrich peels punch's image off the sticky fraternity house floor and reinstates it into the more dignified annals of drinking tradition."
-The Boston Globe "It's fair to say there's nobody in the country who knows more about drinking than David Wondrich."
-New York Magazine "Punch stays true to the antique, but by no means staid, spirit of its old timey, black-and-white-etching-illustrated subject matter, while somehow managing to keep current, relevant, and fresh. [...] A rollickingly fun read."
-TheKitchn.com "[Wondrich's] interest in history runs as deep as his thirst for beverage experiences on the banks of the mainstream[...]."
-The New York Times "Punch lovers are in luck[...]. These aren't the fruity, simplistic punches of recent times. They're complex, subtle concoctions...."
-The Oregonian "The best part of the book isn't the history-it's the 40-plus detailed recipes of how to make your very own authentic Punch."
-The New York Post
