Party Punches

July 4th, 2019 Drink of the Week

two drinks full of fresh fruit These two non-alcoholic punches were on offer at a cocktail party I went to last weekend, and they were delicious! We made them using Barker’s of Geraldine fruit syrups, but you could choose any good quality fruit syrups or cordials. It’s vital to fill the bowls with lots of freshly sliced fruit and ice!  

Limolicious Punch:

Fill a large punch bowl with; 1 x 710ml bottle Barkers ‘Squeezed Limes with Elderflower’ fruit syrup (or similar) 4 x 1.5 litre bottles fizzy water 4 lemons sliced thinly 1 small cucumber sliced thinly Large handful mint leaves Loads of ice  

Tonicberry Punch:

Fill a large punch bowl with; 1 x 500ml bottle Barkers ‘Squeezed Redcurrants with Cranberry & Pomegranate’ fruit syrup (or similar) 4 x 1.5 litre bottles tonic water 4 oranges thinly sliced Loads of ice   Enjoy!
