Forget sugary (and boring) sodas for your next potluck and treat your family and friends to a refreshing homemade punch. Serve up in mason jars with striped paper straws and really "wow" the crowd. —Crystal Bruns, Iliff, Colorado
"With five teenagers, we go through lots of beverages," notes field editor Kathy Kittell of Lenexa, Kansas. "This thirst-quenching tea is easy to mix up and had a sparkling citrus flavor we all enjoy."
Pretty and refreshing, this flavored iced tea was well-received at the Victorian-theme shower. To vary the taste, simply mix in a different fruit juice or blend than the one called for in my recipe.
