Most Americans eat some kosher food every day, but chances are they’re not aware of it. Take a walk down the aisles of any supermarket and you will see that certification appears on over 60% of America’s produced foods that are certified kosher, from the coveted Oreo to the thirst-quenching Coca-Cola. Over $150 billion of kosher certified products are consumed annually, and spending continues to rise dramatically.

You can leave out the rum for a non-alcoholic punch if you wish.
6 oz. sugar
6 fl. oz. boiling water
Juice of 4 limes and 4 lemons
1½ cup pureed mango
⅔ cup strawberry puree (optional)
8 to 10 oz. white rum
1 liter (1¾ pints) tropical fruit juice
1 liter (1¾ pints) lemonade or sparkling mineral water
Plenty of ice
Quartered lime and orange slices to decorate
Stir the sugar and boiling water together until the sugar has dissolved. Let it cool.
Mix the sugar syrup with the lime juice, lemon juice, mango, strawberry puree (if using), and rum (if using) and stir together until well mixed. This can be set aside and chilled until just before you are ready to serve.
Stir in the fruit juice and lemonade.
Serve over ice cubes, decorated with lime and orange slices.
