I followed this link from a previous page titled "Top five elderflower drinks", which described the Summer Punch recipe as "non alcoholic". Well sorry BBC, but by no stretch of the imagination could a punch drink with elderflower liqueur and vodka be non alcoholic. As usual, BBC food is unable to provide interesting non alcoholic drinks.

Maybe that's because non alcoholic drinks are not interesting. Just saying.
