Festive Vintage Fruit Punch Recipe
This sweet, yet refreshing, tea based fruit punch is good for on the go, for the party, or just to drink on hot summer days. The vintage fruit punch recipe comes from a 1951 home and needlecraft magazine The Workbasket. This vintage magazine consists of many interesting things for women including: sewing patterns, sewing tricks, crochet how to’s, recipes and more. The magazine is mostly for women (unless you're a guy and like to crochet and cook) that like to do needle craft for pleasure or even for profit.
