I always thought it was a cliche that in a blink of an eye your children will be grown. I am not speaking of my actual child but my sweet niece , she graduated from college this past week. It seems like yesterday she was running and playing with her long blonde hair in pigtails getting dirty with all her cousins , much to her mother’s dismay. She adored her Granny and always seemed to be with her when we went to visit hanging on every word we said. She was an adorable child that we all loved to be around and has transformed into fine young lady. At her graduation party I was feeling pretty old sitting with the young college aged girls until I tasted this punch they threw together. It was really something they just sort of made up and it was perfect to sip on sitting in the heat by the pool. This was happiness in a cup and made me feel much better.
This adult concoction tasted like pure sunshine and had a perfect mixture of flavors with a slight tropical flare. The ruby red grapefruit in this mixture is noticeable but doesn’t overpower it and makes this drink so refreshing. There is Malibu Rum in this punch but it isn’t very strong so it is a pleasant beverage that can be enjoyed for a long period of time. This is the perfect punch for holiday weekends or outdoor cookouts, this will be my go to beverage for the summer.
This is super simple to throw together and no special equipment is need. Just measure, pour and mix.
