Origin of Elyx Copper Flamingo Punch Bowl:
Punches themselves are thought to be the earliest form of cocktails. They originated in the mid-17th century when British sailors ran out of wine and beer, and thus turned to local spirits to quench their thirst. The problem was that spirits 3-400 years ago were nowhere near as smooth and refined as they are today, so the sailors would scrounge together whatever other ingredients they could find to mix with the spirit and make it more palatable. Rather than make only small batches, they mixed a lot of this together at once and stored it in a barrel called a puncheon, hence the name punch.
As for the flamingo, this elegant bird symbolizes beauty, balance, and grace. Additionally, they are vibrant, social animals that prefer to be in the presence of others, so we hope you'll heed their advice, invite some friends over, and enjoy a refreshing punch!
