But do you really need a holiday as an excuse to make a good punch?


My brother has been making this for years. It’s quite good. He makes it strong but you can make a mild version.

In addition to white wine and rum (not the expensive kind), you’ll need citrus.

Which you let macerate in the rum and wine.

Now frozen lemonade.

And frozen limeade.

A little ginger ale…

A little club soda.

He measured his out because he’s a very precise kind of guy.

And then frozen strawberries which get soft and float along with the citrus.

And then of course a little taste test is in order.

Holiday punch…or Tuesday punch, whenever you’re in the mood.
