One of my friends was married at Magnolia Mound Plantation a few years ago. It was a beautiful day in late Spring with their nearest and dearest mingling under the oak trees as the Spanish moss swayed in the Mississippi River breeze. This punch is a perfect tribute to that day and the love my sweet friend shares with her husband. I like to load it up with some Ponchatoula strawberries fresh from the Red Stick farmer’s market to make it a truly local treat.
It also makes an insanely beautiful cocktail for the holidays. These photos were featured in our Junior League newsletter, thanks to the lovely Kaela from Kaela Rodehorst Photography.

Couldn’t be easier!
