A favorite fruit punch
Here's my pick for an easy fruit punch to serve at a Christmas open house.
FAVORITE FRUIT PUNCH
2 12-ounce cans frozen cran/raspberry juice cocktail
2 1-liter bottles chilled orange-flavored carbonated water* (the raspberry-lime flavor is great, too)
Mix together in a large punch bowl or -- for a picnic -- in a gallon-size insulated jug or a jar. Serve with ice. For a punch bowl, a fruit-filled ice ring is a nice touch. We used this punch for 2 weddings but have also used it for open house at Christmas or New Year’s. It is so easy and delicious! Of course, you may multiply the ingredients for more servings.
Yield: 20 servings.
* Note -- be sure to get the flavored club soda and not just the flavored carbonated waters which are so popular. The flavored water contains aspartame or splenda and makes the punch much too sweet.
