Punxsutawney Punch Recipe

I decided to whip up a special drink to celebrate Groundhog Day (even though I do not like the little critters).  I do love traditions and fun winter events such as this day.  Using ingredients I have on hand that you can easily find during the winter months in the recipe below.  I call it the Punxsutawney Punch Recipe after the critter mentioned later in this post.   In this recipe, I use a whole lemon off my citrus tree in the dome.  They taste SUPER AMAZING this time of year.  Berries I usually freeze from summer markett purchases but you can find them locally at Aldi and even Walmart for the best price.


Inspired by My Kitchen Pantry – using what I have on hand! 

NOTE: Make this a cocktail by omitting the gin and adding 2 oz of sparkling water or sprite soft drink.

Fun Facts About Groundhog Day

The tradition of Groundhog Day was brought over by German immigrants to the U.S. in 1887. The town of Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania on February 2 is where the official groundhog lives and forecast the shadow. Groundhog Day is not an official holiday however many celebrate it throughout the United States.  I can remember as a child in grade school in the late 1970’s wearing a Punxsutawney Phil hat and shirt to school to celebrate. My Dad love traveling across Ohio to Pennsylvania to tour all the really cool historic state parks.  I can remember driving through the town of Punxsutawney.  Interested in visiting and celebrating with the locals?  Check out their website at: Groundhog Day .org  What a great reason to whip up my Punxsutawney Punch Recipe.
