This punch is as important to have at a wedding reception as it is to not wear white shoes after Labor Day. Southern women can make any number of variations of this in their sleep. A classic wedding or anniversary reception beverage, it is addictively refreshing -- which is nice when you're all dolled up and fending off wilting humidity. Serving it in punch cups is the norm, but wineglasses are gaining in popularity.
