Taste of the South

Classic spritz cocktail with an orange slice on wooden table


A big batch beverage (aka—punch) offers such an easy, serve-yourself option to any adult gathering. This recipe has long been served at our family events, and it’s been a consistent crowd pleaser. Note: With the growing market of nonalcoholic spirits, consider swapping out the Southern Comfort with a spirit-free bourbon or rum. Cheers.

Southern Punch
  • 6 lemons
  • 4 oranges
  • 12 oz. frozen lemonade
  • 6 oz. frozen orange juice
  • 2 liters lemon-lime pop
  • 1 liter Southern Comfort

Slice fruit into thin rounds. Place them on a plastic-lined baking sheet; and place in the freezer until fruit is frozen (at least two hours). Just before serving, add frozen lemonade and juice, pop, spirit and several handfuls of ice to a punch bowl. Gently stir. Top the punch with frozen fruit rounds, and serve.
