Quaker Punch

Quaker Punch created by Jenny Sanders

Quakers abhor violence, and many abjure alcohol, although most believe in 'temperance' rather than 'abstinence'. However, they have no objections to double entendres. This is a lovely, refreshing summer time drink. I made it by the gallon for an August wedding last year and it was a big hit.

  • Bruise the mint.

  • Meanwhile, heat the remaining water and sugar just until the sugar is dissolved.
  • Mix with the tea brew.
  • Add the juice of the lemons and oranges, and strain.
  • Serve chilled, over ice.
  • (I don't mind chunky drinks, so I don't bother to strain it the second time).

    Very refreshing drink. I didn't have fresh orange juice so I used concentrated OJ and it still came out excellent. To give it a kick, I added some pineapple rum and boy it is soooo good. Thank you for the recipe.

    I wish I could give this recipe ten stars! I used Earl Grey tea bags and lemons from my tree. I love the hint of ginger taste. For me, this is the perfect ides tea recipe. Many thanks.

    This makes a refreshing drink for a hot summer day. I used 4 regular size tea bags, 2 lemons instead of the 3. The drink was sweetened with Splenda instead of sugar. Everyone loved it, going back for seconds. There were no leftovers on this! :)

    What a great combination, the best of orange juice and iced tea in one! I let my tea steep until quite strong but you could certainly adjust that to your taste. Mine didn't come out quite as orange as in the picture but I expect this depends on how much juice you can squeeze out of the fruit. I absolutely adored the flavour combination and will be making this again as a different summer drink. Make sure you save a bit of mint to garnish the drink with!
