Tea-based punches are the best, in my opinion. This lemony concoction is like a fabulous glass of iced tea with the extra added attraction of sherry. It’s great for parties, big or small. You can even serve it at weddings. Hmmmmm … SAM

12 medium lemons
3 family-sized tea bags
1 cup sugar
1 quart water, boiling
1 750-ml bottle dry sherry

Juice the lemons, reserving the rind. Place the tea, lemon rind, and sugar in a large, non-reactive plastic or stainless steel container. Pour in the boiling water, cover, and brew for 5 minutes. Remove the tea bags and rind. Cool and add the lemon juice and sherry. Serve over ice.
Makes 12 servings.
