    Recipe: My Grandmother’s Tutti-Frutti Punch

    My grandmother was many things, but something she was not was an accomplished cook. However, she and my grandfather entertained quite often and my grandmother came up with a delicious punch recipe she called Tutti-Frutti Punch. Although it has no alcohol in it, you can certainly add some if required. I remember going to her wonderful Christmas parties and being allowed to have some of the punch--it was so delicious and still is today! This punch is perfect for both the holidays and in the heat of the summer. Enjoy!

A shandy is lemonade mixed with beer, providing the perfect summer beverage. They are easy to make at home--check out the simple recipe below.
