This sophisticated punch is perfect for toasting at weddings. Add an ice ring to keep the punch cool.

Pretty, pink and slightly spicy, this lovely nonalcoholic punch is perfect for showers and other events.
This icy drink is great for outdoor events, but it melts quickly, so serve it from the freezer or an ice-filled cooler.
Use black currant–flavoured black tea bags (such as Twinings) instead of herbal tea for an intense, not-too-sweet black currant flavour.
This punch packs a punch. Keep the recipe on hand for summertime celebrations as well as throughout the winter holidays.
Fruity and smooth, this drink makes a pretty-in-pink glass. You could also use white or amber rum instead. For a delicious nonalcoholic Strawberry Punch, replace the rum with water.
This recipe is based on the classic formula of 1 part sour, 2 parts sweet, 3 parts strong and 4 parts weak. Lime juice and rum stand in for the sour and strong; the sweet and weak are left to your taste. These juice combinations are just starting points.
This slush punch is the answer for a big reception or summer party. It's easy to concoct and, all the better for the busy entertainer, must be made the day before. For a less potent beverage, increase the quantity of soda.
Mint and tangerines make this pleasingly refreshing. You'll find tangerine juice in the refrigerated section of the supermarket. Chill all juices and wine before pouring them into the bowl.
A traditional bellini has peach juice and sparkling white wine; here, ruby red berries and grapefruit juice add a new twist.
