This classic punch dates back to circa 1744 Philadelphia.

• 1 bottle (750 mL) Jamaican amber rum
• 1.5 cups calvados
• 0.5 cup peach brandy
• 1 cup oleo saccharum
• 4 cups cold water

Combine ingredients in a large container and stir. Place container in the refrigerate to completely chill. Pour over an ice block in a large punch bowl (see note). Ladle into cups or wineglasses. Serves a crowd.

NOTE: To make a beautiful ice block, the day before you plan to serve your punch, line a Bundt pan with slices of lemon and orange, add ice cubes to hold the fruit down, then fill with water and freeze overnight.
