1930 Prohibition Punches A book of Beverage by Roxan B. Doran



crying out for rest and relaxation. One doctor has gone so far as to declare that in bis estimation all lectures, concerts, etc., scheduled for four o'clock or later in the afternoon, should be po s t – poned until evening, for the sole reason that at that late afternoon hour he believes not on e mind in ten is alert-capable of absorbing th e meat of the entertainment, let al one enjoying it to the fullest extent! So, at this sunset hour your boiling teakettle is a welcome sight to your house guests or informal callers who perhaps have just returnecl from con– cert or lecture with the desire to relax completely before the whirl of evening gayeties. Only light refreshments for this hour-the lightest possible, your hospitality being centered entirely in your teapot. Wafers or toasted cheese crackers are ample. Rich sandwiches might spoil the appetite for dinner.


During the warm weather, as the sun sinks low, thoughts turn to the cool woodland retreats where picnic suppers are enjoyed-or perhaps to that shaded corner of your lawn where a rustic table is laden with sandwiches and a delicious fruit punch. The following recipes are especially appropriate for this supper on the lawn.
