Dear Cooks,

Hi! How many of you are ready to take a break from the summers’ heat? Have a seat in the shade somewhere with a good book and a frosty glass of homemade punch or lemonade? Leave the cell phone and/or tablet in the house and just relax for a bit. Check out the recipes below... I hope they tempt you to take a break and chill-out with a refreshing glass of your choice.

Enjoy! Elaine
