Punch Recipe

I am responsible for the non-alcoholic punch at a surprise party for some friends this week-end. For some reason I never seem to make a great punch! does anyone have a good recipe?

This is my favorite:


5 Oranges (untreated so that you can use the zest)
1 Lemon (ditto)
2 Liters of apple juice
1 Liter of cherry juice
1 Liter of carbonated mineral or spring water

1. Cut one orange into very thin slices.
2. Grate the zest off of two more oranges, and the lemon.
3. Squeeze the juice from the oranges and lemons (leaving out the orange that's sliced).
4. Mix the zest, orange and lime juice with the apple and cherry juice. Chill.
5. Just before serving, add the mineral water.

I've also mixed a liter of black currant juice into this, I think it makes it even better. :)

I like the sound of this. I am a good cook but for whatever reason, on the very rare occasion I make a punch --- not so great!!
My thanks to you. Liz.

You're welcome, I hope you like it! Oh, and the sliced orange goes into the punch bowl to float in the punch, of course - LOL! Forgot to add that. :)

Just to let you know, the punch was a hit!!! I was asked by a few for the recipe.
Perhaps you should try a book "Punch for ????"!!
By the way I actually managed the "Me-- Meme" a first for me.
Many thanks again for the recipe:))
