Punsch refers to a Swedish sweet, yellow alcoholic drink. Punsch also refers to Danish strong liqueur which is based on Arrack - a strong distilled spirit made from fermented fruit, sugar cane, rice and anise seeds. It was imported to Scandinavia in the 18th Century from the Indonesian island of Java. It has a specific color which may vary from golden yellow to dark yellow. Due to the presence of its exotic ingredients, it is characterised by a unique flavor with overtones of almond, banana, chocolate, whisky and even tobacco. Danes or Danish people drink it hot to get warm in the winter or as an accompaniment to the traditional almond cake, Kransekake, especially at birthday and wedding parties.
