Banana Brunch Punch Recipe

Banana Brunch Punch Recipe

A cold glass of refreshing punch really brightens a brunch. It's nice to serve a crisp beverage like this that's more spectacular than plain juice. With bananas, orange juice and lemonade, it can add tropical flair to a winter day. -Mary Anne McWhirter, Pearland, Texas
