Holiday Punch (but it's good for any party!)
½ of an orange, sliced
½ cup fresh cranberries
2 cups cold cranberry juice
2 cups cold orange juice
2 cups Ginger Ale or Sprite Ice
Place the orange slices and cranberries in the bottom of a 2 quart pitcher or a punch bowl if you're multiplying the recipe. Pour in the remaining ingredients and give them a stir. Serve immediately over ice.
If you're making this for a crowd and using a punch bowl, instead of adding ice you can make a sort of float to keep it cold by freezing some water in a tire shaped pan, halfway full. Before it's entirely frozen, put some cranberries and wedges of orange slices on top of the frozen part, let it free, then fill the rest of the pan with water to make it pretty. My wife likes to do this. 🙂
If you want to make this alcoholic, add 1 cup of rum or vodka. IMHO, the rum is better.
