Bunch of Punch

Marsha Gardner


I was a caterer for over 40 years and served more punch than I can remember, this was by far the favorite and least expensive for a large gathering.

I would make an ice-ring using lemonade and add sliced oranges, lemons and lime to float in punch bowl. Looks great and doesn't dilute the punch.
