Tis the season for parties, presents and punch. It’s also the season of rampant carelessness when it comes to imbibing alcohol.

Please be aware when serving alcohol, including booze laden punch to your guests…(not that any of you need a lecture ) that many folks over indulge even when they don’t plan to. That’s one of the drawbacks to punch, there’s a lot to drink and very little alcohol so we keep going back for a 2nd, 5th and 9th cup…not realizing the accumulating effect of ETOH.

This cranberry punch recipe is delicious with or without vodka, and all ingredients are adjustable to your preference. If you do add vodka, remember to keep this punch away from children. They’re such thirsty little creatures!

Please keep yourself and your guests safe at your party, and remember to have fun!

You will need :

Large punch bowl and ladle

1 bottle cold ginger ale- 2 liter size ( We use Canada Dry )
2 cups cold pineapple juice ( We use Del Monte )
1 large (64 oz) bottle cold cranberry juice ( We prefer Ocean Spray )
2 tsp almond extract
1 1/4 cups sugar
1-1/2 cups Vodka ( optional )

Mix all ingredients together, serve and enjoy!
