Whether you are heading out on a picnic or throwing a Summer party, it is important to have thirst quenching drinks on hands. Ones that are family friendly and can be enjoyed by just about anyone.

Punches are so versatile and are delicious to enjoy on a hot Summer day. You can serve them up as a non-alcoholic option, but also with the option for guests to infuse them with their favourite shot of liquor.

Having previously been pregnant during the Summer months, I can attest to how much I can appreciate a delicious glass of punch when attending a cook-out or BBQ. Anything fancier than a boring ol’ glass of water made me a happy pregnant lady back in the day. Ha, ha.

Speaking of picnics… A picnic wouldn’t be complete without a great sandwich. Doesn’t this Country Sandwich Recipe sound good? The only change I would make to this recipe would be to skip the Kraft Single and replace it with Cracker Barrel Réserve Cheese.
