Sparkling Cranberry Punch


Jane Whittaker Recipe

Years ago I spotted a pretty punch bowl in an antique store, and fell in love with it. I told my hubby that I wanted it for Christmas. He said "Why, you don't ever make punch."
And I said" That's because I don't have a punch bowl!".
The rest is history, of course.
The punch bowl sat on a smaller bowl for a pedestel and had matching cups, with hooks to mount them on the side of the bowl.
I always made punch during the holidays because it was something special and non alcoholic for the kids, and of course for the adults you could add some "cheer".

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
Not only does this punch have a great flavor, but it's also downright gorgeous! The fruit/ice ring is a terrific idea for any special occasion and can be adjusted to fit the event and the ingredients you have on hand. Have fun!

Ingredients

64 oz
cranberry juice, divided
6 oz
can frozen orange pineapple juice
1 l
bottle 7 up or ginger ale
1 qt
raspberry sherbert, divided
floating ring:
2 c
cranberry juice
1/3 c
fresh cranberries
1/3 c
fresh fruit your choice, strawberries, blueberries, etc
1 1/2 c
frozen whipped topping, thawed

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Make your floating ring ahead of time, I use a bundt pan because it has a pretty deep design on it.
2
Thaw the frozen topping so you can combine it with other ingredients.
3
Combine all floating ring ingredients.
4
Place in a freezer, and when it starts to set, give a stir to distribute the fresh fruit through out the mold.
5
When you are ready for your guests put punch together. I literally wait until every one is there to keep the sparkle in the punch.
6
Put the frozen orange pineapple in your punch bowl, then add Half the cranberry juice, and half the ginger ale, stir to melt the juice.
7
Add the rest of liquids as you desire, don't fill up all the way to make room for floating ring.
8
Put some hot water in your sink. Add the frozen ring and place in it just to loosen it enough to get it out of your mold.
9
Place frozen ring on tiop of your punch, add the sherbert in the middle, and TA DAH! You got one fabulous looking punch.
