A simple, pretty punch is perfect for serving a crowd; add a splash of chilled ginger ale or soda water for kids, or sparkling wine or Prosecco for adults. Frozen berries, grapes and chunks of fruit keep things cool without diluting everyone’s drink.
1 can frozen cranberry juice or pink lemonade concentrate
1 1.36 L bottle white grape juice
frozen berries, grapes and cubed watermelon chilled ginger ale, soda water, and/or sparkling wine
In a large pitcher or punch bowl, prepare the cranberry juice or lemonade according to the package directions. Stir in the white grape juice and chill until ready to serve. Add frozen berries, grapes and watermelon cubes just before serving.
If you like, add some ginger ale, soda water or sparkling wine directly to the punch bowl (to taste), or offer it alongside for guests to serve themselves.
Serves 10 or more.
