Shifler Family Punch

Since New Year’s Eve is right around the corner I wanted share a yummy recipe for punch! My Grandmother on my Mother’s side used to make this all the time while entertaining.

I threw all the ingredients together for our Christmas Party a few weeks ago and it was a hit.

Here is what you will need:

For the punch-
1 bottle of ginger ale
1 bottle of sprite (or any type of lemon lime soda)
1 bottle of club soda
1 carton of orange juice
1 container of white grapefruit juice
1 (or more) bottle of vodka of your choice
1 jar of maraschino cherries

For the yummy ice ring-
2 oranges
2 lemons
1 jar of maraschino cherries
Water
Round Jello Mold
BIG punch bowl

For the actual punch making- it is pretty self explanatory.  Simply add all the ingredients to taste; making the drink as strong as you like. But be weary.. as my Grandmother wrote on the recipe “Be careful it will creep up on ya.”

For the Ice ring- fill up the jello mold about half the way full of ice water.  Then thinly slice the lemons and oranges and place around jello mold.  Next pour juice of the maraschino cherries into the mold.  Then remove the stems from the cherries and add around the mold.  Put the lid on the jello mold and place into the freezer until completely frozen.

When ready to serve, pop ice ring out of mold and plop into the punch.
