The following recipe, courtesy of Sparrows & Spatulas, makes my mouth water. Not that I need to make everything alcoholic, but if you wanted to spike this punch, rum would do the trick.

Brian's Berry Limeade (adapted from a recipe by Spatulas & Sparrows)
8 limes, squeezed
1 32-oz. bottle organic cherry juice
1/2 cup orange juice
1 pint of raspberries
1 pint of blueberries
1/2 cup of simple syrup
mint leaves (optional)

Combine lime juice, cherry juice and orange juice in large bowl.  Roughly squeeze about 1/3 pint each of the berries in your hands; add to the juices in the bowl and let sit for 15-20 minutes.  Strain the mixture into a large pitcher or punch bowl and add remaining raspberries and blueberries.  Add in simple syrup to taste.  Let sit for at least 2 hours; refrigerate.  Pour into tall glasses filled with ice, garnish with mint (optional).
