Fish House Punch
The decidedly unglamorously named Fish House Punch actually finds its roots in one of the world’s oldest dining clubs, the Schuylkill Fishing Company club - otherwise known as the Fish House.
This mix of rum, cognac, lemon and black tea was traditionally served punch style in a large “bowl of fine Lemon Punch big enough to have swimmed half a dozen of young geese”!
Local legend suggests that President George Washington once visited the club and drank so much of the punch that he was unable to scribe a diary entry for three full days.
Whilst we certainly wouldn’t encourage drinking an entire bowl of this delightful punch, we do hope you enjoy your taste of this classic tipple.
