- Okay, don’t diss me for bringing up the holidays in, YES . September.I know, I know - we just got the kids back to school, and Halloween is around the corner, yada yada yada. But a recent family celebration, complete with punchbowl, left me all mushy and misty and wanting to share this wonderful Holiday Punch recipe with you!For my family, punch is synonymous with celebrations, not just major holidays. Nothing says “festive” like a punch bowl – who could argue that? I don’t have my own, so for any punch-requisite events, I borrow my cousin Max’s – which originally belonged to our Grandma Hilde.Grandma’s punchbowl is packed in its original water-stained box (my Grandparent’s house flooded at least a couple times when I was growing up.) It’s a HEAVY box – 21 pounds for the bowl, ladle, and 18 little punch cups. It’s a beautiful set –not Waterford or cut crystal, certainly, but heavy with lots of nice details - better than most you could get today. The set retailed for $35 when it was purchased (the price is right there on the side of the box!), in the 50’s or 60’s.I’m guessing Grandma bought it on sale, too. Isn’t this a thoughtful message on the inside packing!? Just in case some took out the punchbowl and panicked – “sweet mercy, where are the punch cups”!Alright, enough of my memory lane. You want punch, and punch you shall have. The recipe is super easy – many of the ingredients you likely have on hand!Take note, punch making is a great time to clean out the liquor cabinet. The recipe calls for rum and triple sec, however I have made this punch with a variety of rums (light, dark, flavored, etc.) and fruit flavored schnapps or liqueurs with excellent results. (Once I even used cachaca, a sugar cane derived liquor, in place of the rum - this was completely off the hook in deliciousness . and potency.) But if you want to make this non-alcoholic, leave out the booze and add a little more cherry-flavored sparkling water. Cover the punch bowl with cellophane and put that bad boy in the fridge to chill for a couple hours, so the flavors blend. (Make sure you are chilling the seltzer water, too.) Add the cold seltzer and the frozen cherries immediately before serving.A word on the frozen cherries. I love using frozen fruit in punch – it eliminates the need for ice, and as such eliminates the yucky, diluted melt-y ice cube effect from the punch experience entirely. And what’s better than the punch soaked fruit at the bottom of your tiny cup? I rest my case!Pack a Punch!Here are more great punch recipes that are big on flavor.
The Holiday Punch is a community-created melee weapon for the Heavy. It is a large pair of team-colored knitted mittens, featuring a decorative snowflake woven into the back.
This weapon functions similarly to the Fists except for an additional backstab-esque mechanic. The weapon will always crit from behind in an arc similar to that of the Backburner's (approximately 90 degrees). Any critical hits from this weapon, whether from behind or otherwise, will do no damage but will cause victims to burst into laughter, leaving them temporarily defenseless. Those under the effects of an ÜberCharge can be forced to laugh. Victims who also have the Holiday Punch equipped and held will always be forced to laugh when hit by a heavy wielding the Holiday Punch, regardless of the damage or angle of the hit. Mini-crits will not cause opponents to laugh. Laughing will only occur if the victim is in a position where they would normally be able to taunt. This means that critical hits do not affect disguised or cloaked Spies in any way or victims who are underwater, in the air, or already taunting.
The Holiday Punch is wielded by Heavy Mittens in Mann vs. Machine.
Taunting with the Holiday Punch equipped will perform the Showdown taunt.
