Pinch and a Punch - December

Summer Punch

It's the most wonderful time of the year.. A time spent with the ones we cherish. Here's the perfect punch recipe to entertain this festive season!

1/2 honeydew melon, seeds removed
3 Australian Breakfast tea bags (or use your favourite black tea)
1/4 cup (55g) caster sugar
1L (4 cups) pineapple juice
3 cups (750ml) ginger ale
2 cups (500ml) white rum (optional)
4 mint sprigs, plus extra to serve
4 passionfruit, plus extra to serve
Pineapple wedges, to serve

Scoop out balls of melon using a melon baller or small ice cream scoop and place in a plastic container. Freeze for 1 hour.

Place the teabags in a large jug with 3 cups (750ml) boiling water. Stir in the sugar and allow to steep for 10 minutes. Remove and discard the tea bags and allow tea to cool completely.

Stir pineapple juice, ginger ale, rum (if using) and mint sprigs into the cooled tea. Stir through the passionfruit pulp and top with ice cubes.

To serve, fill glasses with ice cubes and frozen melon balls, then pour over the punch. Garnish with pineapple wedges, extra passionfruit pulp and mint sprigs.
