Bourbon Punch – A Wonderfully Refreshing Southern Cocktail

I can’t find much in the way of an origin on this one but it seems to be most popular in the American south. If you read my main punch description I describe how punch style cocktails have for the most part never worked in commercial settings. Most of these are only made in folks homes and for that reason there are many variations and little written history. If you wanted to learn all the variations and try and get to a root you would need to pop into southern folks homes, make it with them and chat them up. The oldest reference I can find to tea and bourbon punch are hot and seem more hot toddy to me. This is something I will do more research on in the future, in the mean time this is a combination of all the best parts of all the different recipes I could find.
