The godfather of bartending, Jerry Thomas, offered both a hot and cold version of his Scotch Whisky Punch in his 1862 Bartender's Guide and it is in the cold form that the drink has survived. Modernity dictated that we streamline the recipe and ingredients which originally called for boiling water and an extended chilling period.
