Och vår flaska blivit tom,
Då vänder vi den upp och ned
Tills dess inget rinner ur.
Så slicker vi, så slicker vi,
Ba’d utanpå och i.
Och finns det ända nagot kvar,
Får det va’ till sämre da’r!"

Mountain Stream Punch

60 Servings

The fruit is to be peeled and cut in small pieces (about 1 cm). No white substance from the lemons, limes or oranges should be present in the punch.

The fruit is to be blended in the bowl. Then add cold Vodka, Akevitt and Roses lime and stir gently.

Add Ice cubes (plenty) in good time before serving (15-20 minutes) so that the mixture is properly chilled. The ice cubes should not be melted away when serving.
Finally add the ice cold Sprite (bottles should be kept on ice) just before serving to keep the bobbles (carbon dioxide).

Note 1:
To get in the right mood for this punch you have to play some proper music of Edward Grieg and at the same time launce millions of mosquitoes free in the room.

Note 2:
In Briones we were about 60 persons present. The rest of the punch, about 1/3, was donated to the helpful and enthusiastic staff at the Vivanco Estate.
