1967 Valentine’s Day Pink Punch

1967PinkPunch

Here is a perfect punch for Valentine’s Day (or anytime a pink-colored punch is needed} which I came across in a 1967 newspaper. According to the article, a lot of readers write in to the paper inquiring about festive love day themed punches around this time of the year. This recipe was the answer to those pleas. It is super easy to make. Though, to be quite honest, most punches are. It only uses four ingredients. The article describes the punch as “so easy and tasty you’ll welcome it to your party”. The recipe can be easily halved or double as needed.
