I like to entertain and host parties. I've also hosted and co-hosted many events off site. So what do you do when you need a simple, fast punch that tastes great and/or one that is portable?
Pull out two simple ingredients.
Summer Berry Tea
And a two litre bottle of Sprite
(I know this is 7up in the picture. It works too, though I prefer Sprite. My husband drank my Sprite when he was sick last week (not knowing I had ginger ale down in the pantry) and then my grocery store had some crazy sale on it the day I went back for more so all that was left was 7up.)
Here's what you do:
Open the Sprite and insert 2 tea bags inside the bottle (be careful, this often causes some fizzing).
Close the Sprite and put in the fridge for a few hours (I usually do it in the morning if I'm serving it that night, but even 30 minutes will give it flavour if you're desperate).
Pour into a pitcher and serve.
(Sorry for the night-time-flash picture, but remember how I make it in the morning to serve at night? Ya, that's why. And I live way up north in Canada where the sun goes down really early this time of year. So though I took this picture at 5:30, it was well on it's way to being dark and non-flash pictures just weren't working.)
That's it. Really. I like it because it's not overly sweet as some juice/pop mixed punches can be and it's easy to take somewhere if you need to travel with it. No punch bowl required. Also
it can easily be doubled/tripled or halved. And it's a pretty colour (am I the only one who likes to drink pretty looking punch?)
Try it next time you need punch. You may never go back.
