17 December 2009, Comments 0

Now for the best part ofmy traditional Christmas dinner especially if you have your inlaws enforced on you – ALCOHOL. Your Christmas just wouldn’t be the same with a lovely Christmas punch and here is my personal favourite.

Ingredients:

 

1 – 6 oz. can of frozen orange juice

2 – 6 oz. cans of frozen limeade

1 – 6 oz. can of frozen lemonade

1 large can of pineapple juice

1 pint of cranberry juice cocktail

8 cups of cold water

2 quarts of chilled ginger ale

1 quart of plain chilled soda water

1 quart of frozen strawberries

Mint garnish

 

Method:

Empty frozen juices, pineapple and cranberry juice, and water in a large container. Let

stand until frozen juice is thawed; stir well. Add frozen strawberries. Pour mixture into punch bowl. Add ice cubes. Just before serving, gently pour in ginger ale and soda water. Top with fruit ice ring and sprigs of mint. Fruit Ice Ring: Use any combination of lime, lemon or orange slices. Arrange in pattern in ring mold; add water to cover fruit and freeze. Add some spirits or wine to add abit of a kick to your punch.

 

This traditional Christmas punch has both adults and children in mind giving you the option to make it for kids or for when they are in bed exhausted from the long day they have had. I also like to have a punch like this for boxing day when you have friends over for a bit of company.
