My favorite punch! Made this for a baby shower brunch and it was a huge hit! I have designated myself the punch maker for any party!

I made this punch for a Christmas brunch I hosted for my family 4 or 5 years ago. The full recipe makes a lot of punch and, after I made it, I thought I might have a sizeable amount left over. Well, this was the hit of the brunch and I had practically NONE of it left (too bad because my husband and I would have loved to have had a couple more days of drinking this beverage at breakfast.)
It takes a little time to make the base, but once that is done, the rest is extremely easy...and it is so refreshing, so fruity, and everyone,including younger children, love it. I have a friend who got the recipe from me and she also gets rave reviews whenever she makes it for her family or her colleagues at the school where she teaches. LOVE THIS PUNCH...hope others will try it and love it as well!
