This is my favorite punch recipe, from an issue of Taste of Home magazine. We have enjoyed it on special occasions for the last 8 years because it's so tangy and refreshing just as punch should be. But, I will often freeze half of the punch base separately and keep it in the freezer for a family breakfast or a hot summer day. The first 5 ingredients make 3 quarts of frozen base. The final two ingredients are for serving.
