The Beauty of It: Be an admiral of your own fleet with this app! Just one of 64 recipes spanning six punch-loving centuries, Admiral Russell’s Punch (circa 1772) is yours for the making, provided you have all the necessary ingredients. If you don’t, Wondrich’s Index of Punch suggests which missing ingredients, if purchased, will greatly expand your options beyond the recipe on your screen. Readers who delight in the colorful anecdotes found in David Wondrich’s popular book, Punch: The Delights (and Dangers) of the Flowing Bowl, will find this app a welcome companion that defines common as well as obscure ingredients and lets users track favorite and flagged recipes. Names like Blow My Skull (1864), Bloody Murder Punch and Prizefighter Punch provide the perfect “punchline” for your next party – even if you never set foot on a tall ship (or even a sailboat).
