Green Drink

"This punch recipe was my favorite as a child....I would drink it when I visited my older sister's mother-in-law, Mrs. Lillie Moore, in the mid-70s. Mamaw Moore, as we called her, was a wonderful cook but known even more for her hospitality. She would open her home up to hundreds of folks throughout the year. Her country cooking was legendary but her "green drink" was a favorite with everyone. It became such a family favorite that we served it at my wedding in 1983. "Green drink" eventually became a favorite of our two children and we served it at our daughter's wedding in 2014. And yes, we used the same recipe from the dirty pages of my family cookbook just as I wrote it down...."
