This sparkling red punch is a good choice for a buffet at holiday time with a citrus bite. For a less sweet punch, substitute seltzer or club soda for the ginger ale.
Makes about 1 1/2 quarts.
Total time: 20 minutes, plus chilling time.
2 cups cranberry juice
2 cups pineapple juice
1 cup orange juice
3/4 cup triple sec (optional)
1 pint strawberries, hulled and sliced
1 lime, thinly sliced
4 cups ginger ale, chilled
In a large glass container, combine ingredients and chill thoroughly.
Just before serving, slowly stir in the ginger ale. Pour into a punch bowl or large jug and add ice cubes.
