Happy Thirsty Thursday! I currently have a serious punch obsession! It’s really because punches accommodate a large group of people without having to put forth a ton of effort!  I really like southern punches. Planter’s Punch is one of my favorites it is made with rum,lemon juice, orange juice, pineapple juice, simple syrup, grenadine, and Angostura bitters.  This is a great punch to mix up for July 4th or a summer soiree in general.  I am thinking about making this punch over the weekend for a garden party.  The lemons and limes in the punch can be sliced which give the punch a pretty citrus garnish.  Thinking about making a punch? Make Planter’s Punch it’s easy, refreshing, and makes a summer day!
