Holiday Punch Recipe

This is such a lovely time of year.  Love abounds in all its forms.  A favorite for us is being invited to an annual party where the focal point (for me) is this amazing punch.

They call it "Open House Punch" but in the days of yore, it was known as a "Singapore Sling."   Whatever you call it, here is the recipe.  Enjoy!

1 Fifth of Southern Comfort (Note for neophytes:  this means one whole bottle, not 1/5 of a bottle)
6 oz. frozen orange juice
6 oz. frozen lemonade
6 oz. lemon juice
3 liter bottle of 7 up or Sprite

Mix together and add ice (but not too much!)  Then garnish with colorful things such as orange slices and whole cranberries. 

Serve in a pretty glass punch bowl with some kind of large, decorative ladle.

  1. Hmm. Dorothy, I think I need to make up a batch of this and begin enjoying it right away. I have been so lazy and undisciplined with my blogging these past months. I hope to do better in 2014. I'm really glad you are back.
