Memorial Day Recipes: Triple Bow Punch
Stongbow Hard Cider isn't too sweet on its own, but when it's all dressed up with cucumber, strawberries and fresh mint – plus a little lime juice – it turns into the perfect warm-weather drink.

"Punches are easy to make for groups," mixologist Rob Krueger, of Brooklyn's Extra Fancy, says of his cool cocktail. "The Strongbow Hard Cider [in this recipe] gives it a dry, crisp, refreshing taste that’s good for summer parties."
