This was so delicious! It was definatley the hit of my Thanksgiving dinner, only wished I had doubled the recipe. I set aside some of the punch and froze it in ice cube trays to keep the punch cold longer, I added mandarin oranges to the cubes for decoration. FABULOUS
Perhaps with the addition of champagne this is tasty, but this blend pretty much tastes how you would expect: like juice mixed with ginger ale. It does present well and the color is excellent. Otherwise I didn't find it very exciting.
I made this for our Christmas Party 2001 and instead of apple slices, I floated an ice ring with fresh cranberries frozen inside. The punch was a GIANT HIT! Some people added a little to their champagne or their white wine. It made such a hit my mother in law heard the reviews and asked me to make it at the family celebration. Try this one, you'll like it!
I used this recipe for a Family Christmas gathering for 18 people. I made a double batch and needless to say there wasn't any left. The kids and the adults loved it. The cranberry and gingerale give it a little more kick and a little less sweetness. The apple and orange juice give it a unique flavor. My aunt just asked me for the recipe for her granddaughter's christening. If you make it I recommend you make a lot, it goes fast.
I made two batches of this for our Thanksgiving family gathering. One for the kids - made with ginger ale; the other for adults- made with champagne. They were both a big hit! We added ice cubes made of gingerale with a manderin orange slice frozen in each cube. My brother in law said "This really tastes like Sangria !"
I had to quickly make another adult batch - it was yummed up !
This was so simple and delicious--I will definately make it again. I like the look of sliced oranges on top better than apples.
Everyone at Thanksgiving dinner very much enjoyed this punch. I froze cranberries into ice cubes to give a little extra visual punch!
Delicious! I made this for a bridal shower, and the ladies loved it. Beautiful color, and a really wonderful taste...not your typical punch. Will definitely make this again for special events. (Little tip--when making an ice ring, take into consideration the size of your punch bowl. My punch bowl was too small for the ice ring I'd made in my bundt pan, and I had to wait a bit for the ice to melt before I could serve the punch.)
