As many of you know, Al and I love to travel. We take advantage of traveling every chance we get. Many of our trips are overnight trips while other have been out of state trips and even trips out of the Country. What most of you aren’t aware of is our trips often find us browsing in bookstores. Al will be in the mystery section while I will be on the other side of the store in the cookbook section. Yes we know we can get the books and recipes online, but being old school, we like the ides of having a book in our hands. 

This week I’m sharing a punch recipe. It comes from one of my  favorite cookbooks. I bought this cookbook when we went to Savannah, Georgia. The recipe book is called “Big Mama’s Back In The Kitchen”. This time of the year we find ourselves attending wedding showers, weddings, graduation parties, family reunion and etc. I chose this punch recipe because it is so different from most punch recipes you have tasted.  If you are a coffee lover I think you will love it.
