Thanks for telling us about the Batavia arrak, its indeed very interesting..I think I must get some..
The habit of eating hot peasoup in Sweden is still in practise, not only among the army, its widely eaten usually on thursdays. Thursday is "peasoup and pancake day" here, especially in schools.
But the punch is a old habit that maybe i`m afraid is not practised so much by the generation born after the 60s, like myself. I don`t know any of my friends that drinks it..
But I remember my aunt and my grand parents used to drink this punch, not to peasoup,but to a fine dinner.
When I tasted this punch I was a child and didn´t like it..maybe I would like it better now?
What is interesting is that it can be used for drink mixing and in diverse syrups, time for new experiments?
