I never drink wi-i-ine.

Come closer, doll. This holiday punch won’t hurt a bit. In fact, it’ll leave you feeling downright jolly and add a festive touch to your holiday party. For an added pop, make your punch a décor focal point by serving it from one of the statement-making punch bowls below, including two smashing vintage gems. Speaking of vintage, here’s a little historical scoop you can ladle out along with your holiday giggle water: punch dates back to the early 1600s in India when British sailors, who were miles from a pub, mixed local ingredients to create the first punch. The sailors brought the yummy concoction back to England where it became a popular part of English revelry—until Queen Victoria put the kibosh on it saying she didn’t like the “lax moral standards” that came with drinking it. Like they say, every party has a pooper.

This holiday punch will leave you feeling downright jolly while adding a festive touch to your holiday party.
