Here is a really easy, yet very good, non-alcoholic party beverage. I have had it many times and most recently served it at our cooking club holiday luncheon.
CIDER CITRUS SPARKLE PUNCH. Makes 24 (4 oz.) servings.
* 2 quarts (8 cups) apple cider, chilled
* 6 oz. can lemonade concentrate, thawed
* 28 oz. bottle ginger ale, chilled
Ice cubes or mold.
In a large pitcher or punch bowl, combine cider and lemonade concentrate. Add ginger ale and ice; stir to blend. If desired, garnish with apple or lemon slices.
How easy is that?!?
P.S. It is now December 26 and I've been going through some of my holiday cookbooks to put together a brunch menu and to find an appetizer recipe for New Years Eve. In that process, I came across the recipe above for Cider Citrus Sparkle Punch and can now give you the source: Pillsbury Classics No. 13, "Festive Holiday Recipes." Thanks, Pillsbury, for a great recipe!!
