Drink of the Day — Palmetto Punch


Today’s drink of the day is the Palmetto Punch.  It is not found in many American drink books of its era, before 1900, and I am not allowed to tell you where I found the old recipe.  But I did place some historic attestation to the drink in the recipe itself.  If you can find Seville bitter oranges, maybe from a tree planted over a century ago in the back yard of a kindly neighbor in Southern California, your Palmetto Punch can be wonderful.  It is still quite lovely made with common, sweet oranges.  In fact, there are few other orange juice drinks this good.
