When asking mom for her favorite recipes, she showed me this punch recipe, saying, “Oh we had so much fun with this punch!” Her brother, who was a bartender at a classy wood-paneled restaurant, the Black Forest in Mequon, Wis., helped enliven this recipe. (The Black Forest closed more than 30 years ago.)
1 bottle Southern Comfort
1 (6 oz.) can frozen orange juice
1 (6 oz.) can frozen lemonade
1 c. cherry juice
1 qt. seltzer
1 bottle sweet soda
Mix and into a punch bowl. Chill with a clear large block of ice and adorn with lemon and orange slices and maraschino cherries.
