Here’s a punch that everyone will enjoy. It goes without saying that you shouldn’t use your very best wines for this—affordable sparkling wines are fine for this recipe.
(For 20 people)
One 12 oz can orange juice concentrate, thawed but still chilled (a blood orange concentrate gives a nice colored punch, although it can be difficult to find)
Two 12 oz cans pink lemonade concentrate, thawed but still chilled
One 2 liter bottle ginger ale, thoroughly chilled
Two bottles sparkling wine, chilled
Two limes, cut into wedges
Small jar maraschino cherries
In large punch bowl, combine cans of orange juice and lemonade concentrate, ginger ale, and liquid from maraschino cherries. Stir well. Add sparkling wine and stop stirring.
Add a few lime wedges and ice cubes as needed.
Use lime wedges and cherries skewered on toothpicks to decorate glasses (optional).
