Catholic Recipe: Fruit Punch for Children, with variations
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.
Cook sugar and water for five minutes. Cool. Add juices and the grated rind and any of the following combinations:
(1) 1 cup grated pineapple
1 qt. ginger ale.
(2) 1 qt. strained
sweetened strawberry juice
1 qt. raspberry juice
2 qts. ginger ale.
(3) 1 glass currant jelly dissolved in 1 cup hot water. Cook, chill, and add 1/4 cup mint, finely minced.
(4) 1 qt. cider
1 qt. grape juice
1 qt. soda water.
