Are you having a holiday gathering this month? I have a very tasty and pretty punch recipe to share with you today.
We made this for my daughter’s wedding reception and we loved the flavor. The addition of almond extract makes it irresistibly good!
I made an ice ring by pouring about two inches of pineapple juice into a round metal mold. Into the mold I dumped about a cup of whole cranberries and froze this. About three hours later I poured pineapple juice up to the top of the mold and placed in the freezer. You will want to allow at least 24 hours if not longer for the mold to become solid.
We floated orange slices and additional cranberries for a nice look.
Now imagine surrounding this punch bowl with evergreens and red berries for Christmas! Pretty!
1 (48 ounce) bottle cranberry juice
1 (48-ounce) can pineapple juice
1/2 cup sugar
2 teaspoons almond extract
1 (2-liter) bottle ginger ale, chilled
Stir together first 4 ingredients until sugar dissolves. Cover and chill 8 hours.
Stir in ginger ale just before serving.
Yield: 6 1/2 quarts
Recipe is from Southern Living
Our punch bowl is from a garage sale! Sorry the picture still shows the saran wrap around it. The lady who sold this had it all boxed and wrapped to keep the air away. It is a beautiful, beautiful bowl with detailed tray and ladle! What a find!!
