Springtime Lunches

The weather’s warming up, the wild ducks have herds of fluffy baby ducklings following them around, and there are gangly calfs lolloping around in the fields.  It’s springtime, and that means it’s time for lunches that stretch into the afternoon and cool concoctions in jugs.

This is an apple and berry punch – a mixture of thawed frozen rasberries, slices of lemon and orange, mixed with apple & strawberry juice, some lemonade, and several heaping handfuls of ice.  Deliciously sweet and cool, I particularly liked the addition of the raspberries.  While they tend to go mushy and disintegrate after a while, I think it just adds a nice raspberry tang to the drink.
