Summer Punch – Perfect for Hot Summer Days

Refreshing Summer Punch is Perfect for Those Lazy Summer Days 

Ah, the Halcyon days of summer come to an end each year and that saddens me. When the green leaves turn to gold and then fall away, you can hear the whine of the train and the lonesome whippoorwill. There are fewer whippoorwills than in my youth; that too is sad. That really is a country song.

So on these last balmy nights of summer, grab a cool glass of Summer Punch, hang out in the hammock and listen to the sounds of the changing season. You can hear the quiet except for the cicadas.

This was one of the first recipes I ever published. I wanted to make this great punch and when I looked at the article I realized that it needed a bit of updating. The Punch is as good as ever and I will make more!
