Abuelito's Super-Special Punch

November 8, 2011


Author Notes: My grandfather was a healthy man--an eater of "mostly plants" way before it was de moda to do so. Still, my cousins and I could count on one thing every Christmas that broke this rule: a punch made specially for us. Out came my Abuelita's 1970's-style punch bowl, replete with ladle and frosted red cups, which only added to the festivity of the occasion. His punch is fruity and bright, and gets an extra splash of color from a winning ingredient--rainbow sherbet. I promise, this punch will make you very popular with kids of all ages. For an adult version, try adding a hint of rum. Cristina Sciarra
