“This is a delicious, refreshing non-alcoholic punch. It's wonderful on a very hot day. Its only disadvantage is that, as the recipe says, it has to be drunk fairly quickly, before the slush melts. So this isn't a recipe to use at a party where the punch may sit in the bowl for quite awhile.”
2-4 punch bowls
