Sparkling Beach Party Punch

In The Imbibery and Distillery by Christine McKellar

Entertaining a crowd at the beach bungalow this weekend? Keep it simple but sparkling with a zesty beach punch. Or take a pitcher by the pool. This refreshing concoction goes well with sun and water no matter where. It may be a bit sweet for some. You  could substitute the passion fruit rum with unflavored rum or vodka.
