If there are many children and very young people, it is good to know different fruit punch combinations. Here is a basic recipe, with variations.

It is great fun to try out new variations every year. One starts with lemonade or orangeade and soon the children will go on to pineapple-ade, raspberry-ade. . . .  In the Trapp family they have something called "Hedwig-ade" because it is Hedwig's own secret.

(1) 1 cup grated pineapple
1 qt. ginger ale.

(2) 1 qt. strained
