The Sidekick’s Summer Punch

Often by my side in the kitchen - I called on the Sidekick for a very special assignment...

Come up with an easy to make, pretty in the pitcher - summer punch that we could show off in SEA AND BE SCENE TV's Porch Project Special ...and she delivered big time!

Our quantities are based on whipping up a party-sized batch - "besides who has time to measure mama - it's summer".  As you'll see in the show we have a very large decanter with a spigot for easy serving.

As a bonus - the recipe is easily spiked for the adult beverage seekers on your summer guest list.

method

Pour everything in and stir!

It's that simple

 

serving and tips

icecubesIf you're going to set up in a 'serve yourself' decanter - you're going to want to keep it cold, so make a tray of ice cubes using the juice ingredients - this will keep your punch cool without diluting the flavour.  We popped in some berries to give it a festive feel.

To continue that easy going summer style - serve in mason jars!

If you're going to be outside glue different colour buttons to the lids so folks can use to keep bugs out AND know which glass is theirs if they sit it down.

We recommend vodka or white rum be added to this punch - and we serve that in a separate decanter - add 1 oz (or 2) to your personal jar as desired. 😉
