Green tea punch: Apple & Pinneaple (with or without alcohol)
It’s that time of the year where people who don’t drink alcohol (like me) will be reminded of it the most, again. Load up on patience and love, and most of all we thank all the people who do drink alcohol who accept us as we are without passing judgement.
This being said, every critic made about my choice, from people who don’t get why I don’t drink has given me all the motivation to come up with some mind-blowing punch recipes to impress them. Haha! It’s proven to be quite remarkable in the past, and this recipe is no different, you should definitely add this one to your summer drinks list.
