Need a great recipe for punch to serve a crowd? Need a punch that if spilled won’t turn your carpet red? Then this citrus punch is the punch for you.  My good friend Rebecca made this for a luncheon at church, it was so light and refreshing, all of us ladies wanted the recipe.  She was kind enough to share, so here is the recipe for you, hope you enjoy it and pass it to your friends too.

1 T. pure lemon extract (not imitation)
1 T. citric acid (found at most natural food stores)
2  1/2 cups sugar
5 quarts cold water
sliced citrus fruit
Crushed ice

Put all ingredients into a punch bowl except fruit slices and stir well until sugar dissolves. Add fruit slices and serve. To save any left over punch take out fruit slices or it will get bitter-tasting.

This is a great recipe that we have used for years, even using Splenda in place of the sugar. Make sure you use PURE lemon extract for the best flavor.

You are so right Frieda, it does need to be pure lemon extract not the imitation stuff.

This sounds so yummy..especially since I'm pregnant and could eat a whole lemon. My mouth is watering just looking at the pictures. Thanks for the recipe!

Suz..this looks so refreshing and quenching in delicious way. I love how you presented and photographed it. This is what I would love to have handed to me while lying on the beach on a super hot day, or any day or place for that matter!
