Jake’s niece tries some of the punch. Notice she’s drinking from the same cup her daddy used when he was a little boy.
I decided to mix up this recipe from “PETA’s Vegan College Cookbook” for the kids (and adults) to drink. Sometimes you need to make something fancy and special. Plus, this isn’t that difficult to make. The original recipe called for microwaving the juice till the brown sugar dissolved, but I find that rather unreasonable. That means the juice is hot and takes longer to chill. Stupid, if you ask me. I just kept mixing till the sugar dissolved. If you’re an adult who drinks adult beverages then tip a little rum into your glass as well. Jake and his brother Tanner liked it that way best.
