A bowl of refreshing punch is the ideal beverage for a large gathering--be it a bridal shower, birthday party or other warm weather celebration. Non-alcoholic punches are a popular alternative to serving liquor. Those with alcohol are certainly more economical than an open bar or serving wine. Apricot nectar, orange and pineapple juices, cream of coconut and rum form the base of Cream-Of-Coconut Fruit Punch. Club soda adds the sparkle.

Step 1: Wash and scrub the lemons or limes; there's often a thin layer of wax or other preservative on the peel. Cut each fruit nearly into four pieces by making two cuts at right angles to each other from one end of the fruit almost to the other, leaving enough uncut that fruit can be opened without falling apart, about 1/2 inch. Step 2: Generously salt the exposed flesh, using at least three tablespoons per pound of lemons.
