Don't Feel Like Water

Punch Dispenser

I recently attended a wedding that had a really simple non-alcoholic punch on offer.  I admit that my opinion of fruit punch has always been a great idea for kid’s parties and that is about it.

After seeing how popular this simple little gem was on a hot day, I have changed my mind. Combining these ingredients with ice and serving them in a clear glass dispenser with a cute little tap made this punch 100 times more elegant than a large fly attracting frosted plastic bowl and dodgey ladle.

I did catch the odd lady topping up her punch with Champaign or sav blanc, showing that with punch pretty much anything goes.

Tips:

If you don’t mind spirits in your drink, tip a little in your glass and top up with punch rather than making the whole bowl alcoholic.

Add mint for a fresh zing.

Recipe

500ml cold brewed tea

1.25L ginger ale

1.25L lemonade

1L tropical fruit punch

1 lemon sliced

2 limes sliced

200g glace cherries

Lots of ice
