The Punch With a Kick!

When it comes to entertaining a group, I’ve got just one word for you, booze-wise: Punch. This one's loosely based on the Long Island Iced Tea from my homeland—make a vat of it and keep it flowing. A couple big benefits: It’s strong enough to get the party started, but too sweet for anyone to go overboard, and it saves you from getting stuck in the kitchen mixing cocktails or hauling the chardonnay out of the fridge for the gazillionth time. Plus, mine’s got fruit in it, so technically it’s good for you… right?

  • The night before, put the ingredients in the fridge.
  • Combine all ingredients except the ginger ale in large pitcher or punch bowl; add the berries. Right before the party, add the ginger ale (otherwise it will go flat).

This will always be my favorite picture of my mom, because it displays the sheer joy in her face as she reaches for her favorite present-- a roll of twenties. Happy Mother's Day, Terri. You really are the best! ❤️❤️❤️ (And Happy Mother's Day to anyone else reading this, if it applies. And if it doesn't, have a fabulous Sunday!)
