This day you can take a lot of ways. Either by throwing a few punches at someone or something, using tools to punch a hole, as in a hole punch, or even make a thirst-quenching drink.
The word punch is a loanword from Hindi panch, (meaning five). Originally, punch was made with five ingredients: alcohol, sugar, lemon, water and tea or spices. It was called paantsch.
So how are you going to show punch today?
