A beautiful bowl of punch creates the mood for any celebration. Perhaps it is because punch remains the most democratic beverage of all, with everyone enjoying the same drink from the same source, and each return to the punch bowl offering the prospect of a new encounter.

It was the English and Dutch sailors in the early 1700s who took the idea of punch back to Europe from India. The word itself coming from the Sanskrit (pañc) meaning 'five', as the drink was originally concocted from five key elements – sweet, sour, alcohol, water and spice.

The '5 elements' idea remains a handy guide with the difference between a good and a great punch being in the balance of elements. Remember, a great punch should never be too alcoholic, but rather refreshing and approachable with an interesting flavour that keeps everyone coming back for more.

For the Melbourne Food and Wine Festival 2017 we asked cocktail consultant Shaun Byrne to create a selection of punch recipes using the range of high quality artisan liqueurs, spirits and amari imported by Enoteca Sileno. We think you'll be inspired by the results.

Lemon Laganelle are narrow ribbons of pasta made with free-range eggs and semolina to which the zest of fresh lemons has been added. When cooked, this egg pasta has a brilliant yellow colour and fresh, lemony aroma. The lemon flavour is distinct without being overwhelming and combines well with so many ingredients. Try them with fresh ricotta, and chopped fresh herbs, or with your favourite pesto.  They are particularly brilliant with seafood and shellfish. This summer recipes combines fresh prawns and peas.

Like tall sailing ships arising from a calm sea, the mountains of the Piana Rotaliana are part of a small section in the Dolomites that hug the sides of verdant green valley in Alto Adige.
