Fourth of July

Lemonade-Gin Punch

August  6, 2011
Author Notes

I first developed this as a non-alcoholic punch for the funeral of a family friend. Normally I wouldn't have chosen a lemonade punch, but it's what the family wanted. So, I tried to make it work, and I think the result, and the alcoholic version that followed, are a big success. It's light, crisp, and has just the right amount of kick.

Note: The amounts for the alcoholic version I am providing are for an individual cocktail. The step by step instructions explain how to make a full batch. —kevin.townsley
