Fruit Punch Print E-mail

A refreshing drink on a hot summer day! This recipe, given to us by our friend, Courvosier, at Traughber Middle School. Reminiscent of sangria, this punch is full of fresh fruit that you can spoon out of the glass when the liquid is gone. It's great for an informal barbeque or a sit down dinner, like Matt's chicken piccata. The citrus flavors compliment each other.

Liv and Belle were invited to do a cooking demo and book signing at Traughber and the students there put together the "Taste of Traughber Cookbook" as a gift. We chose 5 recipes that made up a complete meal. But there are lots and lots more! Our thanks to Courvosier, all the other students who participated and to Ms. Loretta Burke their teacher who organized the event. Great job!
