2 litre Ginger Ale
2 litre Lemonade (or as the Americans call it – Sprite)
5ooml Orange Juice
1 litre Fruit punch Juice (or if you are in Australia Golden Circle fruit punch is gold)
1 Fresh Lime
1 tin Crushed Pineapple
5oog Crushed Frozen Raspberries
If possible prepare by freezing fresh mint leaves and pineapple into ice-cubes of orange juice so the flavours permeate the punch better and last longer.
Pour about half a bottle of all drinks into the punch bowl. Take care to pour soft drinks close to the edge of the bowl slowly so the carbonation isn’t lost as easily.
Add mint leaves, raspberries, pineapple, lime juice and crushed ice.
Then my favourite part of the whole process… taste testing! It barely ever needs changing but the fun of calling a buddy over that’s never tried it before and asking them if its ok is just great. Be prepared for people to wonder why they are drinking a ‘garden’!
Taste test the punch and manipulate additives to suit. There’s no rules… it’s punch! You can’t go wrong!
