Sugarcane Punch

If you’re lucky enough to find sugarcane juice at a farmer’s market near you (there are several in the Atlanta area), this is a surprisingly light and refreshing drink.  The juice of the sugarcane isn’t overpoweringly sweet.  It has a refreshing, almost grassy flavor that adds a lightness to it.  It also provides a small amounts of iron, calcium, potassium, and sodium.

Happy 4th, everyone!
