Fruit punches can be all too sensible and civilised. Yet they don't have to be dull and predictable. Be a little unusual. Go a little tropical. Buy the freshest, juiciest, most sunburnt fruits and mix or blend.


1 cup pineapple juice

1 cup orange juice

1 cup grapefruit juice

1 mango, peeled and sliced

1/2 yellow papaya, cut into cubes

1 cup crushed ice

fresh mint leaves


In a large bowl, combine the juices, drop in the fresh sliced fruit and chill in the fridge for an hour.

Serve in chilled punch bowls, with a spoon, over a mountain of crushed ice and decorated with mint leaves.
