Pretty in Pink

This photo caught my eye for its pretty pink color.  Then the recipe sounded just as good as it looked.  What a great punch to serve at Easter!  The recipe includes instructions for both non-alcoholic and alcoholic versions so you can please everyone.  This would also be great for Mother's Day and wedding and baby showers (especially if mom is having a girl!)

    I think this is a great idea. I’m a big outdoors person, and I am excited to do this at the next gathering I have with a group of my girlfriends. I think this will be a great addition to our outdoor meal.
