Sparkling Cranberry Orange Punch

Angela Gray


This wonderful and refreshing punch was inspired by my love of cranberry salad. It is quick and easy to make and can be frozen till ready to use, just slightly thaw and pour in the soda. The beautiful red color makes it perfect for the holidays and is a festive addition to any buffet ! My Grandmother Elsea always made this punch minus the cranberry juice, it is very good to .
