Artillery Punch

Artillery Punch

Artillery Punch has a rich history. The punch originated in Savannah, GA with the Chatham Artillery, and was served to Admiral Winfield Scott Schley during his visit to the city after the Spanish-American War. By all reports, the punch had a much more dramatic effect on him than the Spanish guns.
