The Dangers of Fruit Punch (part two)


PuncehMany years ago, in the late seventies when I was a student, the standard drink at student parties was a fruit punch. This innocent formulae generally involved tipping bottles of Hirondelle (or other uber-cheap wine), into a washing up bowl, adding a couple of segmented oranges, some orange juice and a small bottle of spirits. Central to the recipe was the hope that person’s unknown would add some alcohol or other goodies as the night wore on…

I once went to a party,
As a student some years ago,
A girl staggered up to the punch bowl,
And up, into it, she did throw!

A student approached the drinks table,
Had a beard, was talking much sh*t,
“This punch appears to be fruity,
I wonder what they put in it?”
