I’ve recently decided that punch is close to the best thing ever. I had a bourbon pineapple one recently, and loved it, and figured that making a big pitcher of one to enjoy on a Saturday afternoon would be just about perfect.
- 8 ounces dark rum
- 4 ounces light rum
- 2 ounces triple sec
- 16 ounces orange juice
- juice of 2 lemons
- juice of 1 orange
- 1 lemon, thinly sliced
- 1/2 orange, thinly sliced
- 1/2 cup mint, roughly torn up
- 1 can ginger ale
Mix all ingredients in a pitcher and serve over ice.
I loaded up on strawberries this weekend at the farmers’ market. It was a busy Memorial Day weekend, so I was not able to do as much cooking as I would have liked, but I did manage to do a couple strawberry recipes – this strawberry sangria and a strawberry rhubarb tart I’ll post soon. I do hope to get another big batch of berries this weekend to make strawberry jam and ideally can a few jars. We’ll see how that ambitious plan turns out…
The perfect drink for the Memorial Day BBQ I was headed to.
Strawberry Mint Sangria
- 1 bottle white wine (I used a fairly dry Sauvignon Blanc)
- 1/2 bottle rose wine (again, I used a fairly dry one)
- 3/4 cup Triple Sec
- 1/4 cup simple syrup
- 2 cups sliced strawberries
- 1 lime, thinly sliced
- 1/4 cup mint, roughly tore up
Mix all ingredients together in a pitcher. Let flavors come together for at least 2 hours before serving. Serve over ice.
