Plantation Punch

"This punch has a tradition of being served in the South, and is best made with freshly squeezed lemon and lime juices and not-from-concentrate fresh orange juice. The prep is done the night before, so you can put the whole punch together in about 5 minutes the next day. (The cooking time is actually the time the punch needs to be in the fridge overnight.)"

Our family moved to Florida from New York in the 90's, so I've brought not only many of the recipes my family has passed down, but have learned to cook some great Southern dishes as well.? When I found RZ, it opened up a whole new world of cooking -- cuisine from different countries, tried-and-true family hand-me-down recipes, and some interesting and delicious dishes I would never have found on my own.
