Just with three ingredients, is this most emblematic drink on the Madeira Island - and also the most dangerous. Don't be fooled by the small cup and its harmless look (at first glance, it looks like juice). Our advice is to drink it while standing, to never lose track of the floor and the surrounding space, otherwise, if you stay seated to drink while attacking peanuts or lupins (the best combination), you are quite capable of ending up seeing the world turning around. The simplest and most traditional poncha is made only with sugar cane brandy (Madeiran rum), sugar and lemon juice and is called the fisherman's poncha. Everything is well mixed with the poncha stick, better known as “caralhinho”. But there are more versions, some sweeter (and, as such, more dangerous). Discover four ponchas that you can drink in Madeira, but pay attention to the ingredients - in some, the traditional sugar cane brandy has been altered with other white drinks, from vodka to absinthe.
