Iced tea is nice. Add lots of fresh lemon and/or some fresh mint from the garden :-)

im going to be doing a fruit punch with fresh strawberries and different juices. Worked well when i had my babyshower because i just put a bottle of vodka next to the bowl so if anyone wanted it alcoholic then they could just pour a bit in their cup :)

From another thread - sounds good.

Rhubarb Champagne
1 Kg of Rhubarb washed and CHOPPED
1 & 1/2 tsb of white vinegar
700 grams of white sugar
3 & 1/2 litres of water
Zest & juice of six lemons

Put all ingredients into A large non metal container,mix it up and make it nice,stand for 48 hours,strain then bottle and leave for three weeks before drinking,it is very very nice and refreshing also non- alcoholic

You can also make ginger beer with the above recipe,but I don't remember how much ground ginger to use instead of the rhubarb.Does anyone have any suggestions!

Thanks everyone I am definitely going to make these. perhaps the rhubarb one may need a bit more time but I might have that one for new year. Yummy!

Alcohol free Cranberry Spritzer
Mix equal parts cranberry juice, white grape juice & sparkling mineral water
Easy and very refreshingly different take on the usual punch served.

We always do one with orange juice, ginger beer/ale, cold tea (a pot full) something else and mint leaves - cant remember exactly, Mum makes it. I love it and I dont like fizzy drinks

Not home made, but I love the Pinto party punch which most bottle stores, and some supermarkets, stock.

Most of these suggestions seem to be very sugary to me. What level of sweetness would you class as "not sugary sweet". puss-n-boots' recipe looks like it would fit your requirements very well.
