Cocktail Friday (on a Monday): Summer Punch

Summer Punch cocktail

I didn't manage to post my Friday cocktail last week. I know that it's very likely that nobody actually noticed but I agonised about it nonetheless. I did make and photograph a classic Piña Colada (on same day I made the Piña Colada Swiss Roll) but it was a very overcast day and the photographs looked anything but tropical.  So Cocktail Friday is now Cocktail Monday (doesn't quite have the same ring, does it) but this totally acceptable since I am on holiday.

This Summer Punch is easy to make and perfect for a party. You can even make a virgin mocktail version for the kids or anyone not imbibing as it tastes equally refreshing without any alcohol. Cheers everyone!

Summer Punch
Serves 3-4
360ml | 1 1/2 cups pomegranate juice (such as Pomegreat)
240ml | 1cup ginger beer (such as Old Jamaica)
80ml | 1/3 cup silver tequila (or more to taste)
60ml | 1/4 cup Limoncello
Juice of 2 lemons (or oranges if you prefer it sweeter)
Lemon slices to serve

Method
1. Put all the ingredients in a large jug with plenty of ice and stir.
If you are preparing this in advance leave out the ice and ginger beer and keep chilled. Add the ginger beer and ice just before serving.
2. Serve tall with plenty of ice and lemon slices.
