Tasteful Tuesday: Cranberry Pineapple Punch

CranberriesThis punch is perfect for early fall when the temperatures are still mild (or unseasonably hot), as well as the holidays when cranberries are in everyone’s pantries. A special ingredient adds more delicious flavor to the beverage, and it can easily be adapted for the addition of rum, vodka or other alcohol.

What You’ll Need:

  • Crushed ice
  • 4 cups cranberry juice
  • 4 cups pineapple juice
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar*
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 liter cranberry ginger ale

Directions:

  1. Fill a large punch bowl about 1/4 full of ice. Add the juices and, if desired, the granulated sugar. Stir until the sugar is combined, or go to step 2.
  2. Add almond extract, ginger ale, and if desired, your choice of alcohol. Stir well and serve!

*for a less sweet drink, omit the sugar
