Graduation Party - Fruit Punch
This punch recipe is ideal for a punch bowl and provides a great fruit taste, without the color to stain your carpet.
2 cans frozen limeade concentrate
2 cans frozen lemonade concentrate
2 cans unsweetened grapefruit juice
2 cans pineapple juice
Refrigerate until ready to serve.
Just before serving add:
3 quarts ginger ale
3 quarts chopped ice (or better yet, make an ice ring from one of the ingredients)
1 quart water
Ice Ring for punch bowl
Make an ice ring using at least one of the punch ingredients so that as it melts it will not dilute the punch. A bundt pan works well for an ice ring. If you don't have a bundt pan, use a saucepan for a round circle.
Mix up the fruit juice ingredients a day in advance. Pour into pan and freeze over night. You may add cherries and sliced pineapple to the ring before freezing. If you want them to float symmetrically, set a timer for 1/2 hour and rearrange fruit before it freezes to hard. To remove ice ring from pan, set pan in warm water in your sink until it loosens. Put ice ring into punch bowl before punch to avoid splashing.
