                                             Fruit Punch                                          

Punch 2-1

This is my favorite punch to serve kids.  It’s a simple recipe and very forgiving if you want to change the flavor or the color of the punch.

Fruit Punch

1  (12 oz) can frozen apple juice
1  (12 oz) can frozen pink lemonade or lemonade
1  (6 fluid oz) can unsweetened pineapple juice (optional)
2  (2 litter) bottles ginger ale


In a punch bowl, mix together apple juice, pink lemonade and pineapple juice (optional).  Add ginger ale and ice then serve.
* Make ahead, mix the first three ingredients and refrigerate it.  Just add ginger ale  and ice when ready to serve.
