Pineapple with a punch!
Three distinctive drinks from childhood summers
Recently I spent a fruitful couple of days learning about ambient sound recording through the Dungog Community College with a great group of creative people led by artist, Virginia Hillyard, from the Sydney College of the Arts.
My listening and recording skills are improved and inspired. An underwater mic dropped into the beautiful Williams River and a contact mic attached to fence wires made extraordinary tones! As for the dairy . . .

Added bonus: I grabbed the opportunity to cook a couple of Ruby Borrowdale's yummy pineapple meringue pies for the group, and collect fondly described punch recipes, which of course included pineapple juice. You’ll have to experiment with the proportions yourself!
I apologise if I took down anyone’s combination inaccurately! Anne
Pauline - pineapple juice; lemonade; juice of 2 oranges and 1 lemon
Paul - unsweetened pineapple juice, ginger ale, lots of chopped mint, ginger refresher cordial and soda, ice (I can recommend the ginger refresher cordial, it added a great zing)
Jane - a very fruity herbal tea (I used pomegranate); tropical fruit punch (I used pineapple); ginger beer; chopped mint; soda; fruit; ice
