Christmas is here and today we are bringing you a new idea straight from the Basque Culinary Center to surprise all your guests, with the always aromatic and refreshing taste of Nordés.
Christmas punch originated in India and its name in Hindi is pãc. This word means “five” and refers to the number of ingredients used in the original punch recipe.
