“The Livin’s Easy Summer Punch”

SpreadtheTruth's picture
  Vodka 750 Milliliter (Sobieski)
  Creme de cassis 12 3⁄4 Ounce (Marie Brizard)
  Cold water 16 Ounce
  Orange juice 17 Ounce
  Fresh lime juice 8 1⁄2 Ounce
  Ginger ale 25 1⁄2 Ounce (3/4 of a 1-liter bottle)

Funnel all ingredients except ginger ale into a large sealable plastic container. Tad recommends an empty, clean gallon milk container. Shake to incorporate all ingredients. Allow to chill in fridge for 30 minutes, or make it up to one day in advance.
Pour mixture into large decorative punch bowl, over Garden Ice (recipe below). Top with chilled ginger ale and stir gently. Garnish with sliced lemons, limes and oranges and thinly-sliced ripe strawberries. Add a blueberry or two for anti-oxidation purposes. Serve and enjoy!

For Garden Ice:
Fill a one-quart, clean plastic container halfway with water (think take-out wonton soup here). Drop in a handful of fresh mint leaves. Cover and freeze overnight. When ready to use, run the outside of container under warm water. Place ice block flat side down in punch bowl.
