As I flipped through my vintage recipes books the other day, my eyes were immediately drawn to this one. It sounded so exciting! Fairy punch. Who doesn’t want to try that?

I love that the directions call for *unfermented grape juice*. This makes me wonder if there was a similar common recipe that called for an alcoholic version. I guess you could always try it with fermented juice. I may come across that recipe in another one of my dozens of vintage recipe books. Who knows!

I have several notes on the recipe. You can find them just under the instructions. I also think that you would want to double or triple this recipe for any type of party.

Enjoy and Happy cooking! πŸ’‹

Fairy Punch

Prep Time 15 minutes

Ingredients

  • ΒΌ of a fresh pineapple, cubed (approimately 1 ΒΌ Cup, or one can of chunk pineapple)*
  • 1 quart unfermented grape juice, regular
  • 1 Cup cold tea (recipe did not specify on sweet or unsweet)
  • 3 oranges, juiced
  • Β½ banana, sliced
  • 2 Cups granulated sugar
  • Ice (amount not specified)
  • Carbonated water
  • "a few cherries"**
  • 1 lemon washed, sliced***

Instructions 

  • Mix pineapple, grape juice, cold tea, orange juice, lemon, banana, sugar, and cherries. Blend well.
  • This step called for placing a "small block of ice" in a punch bowl and then pouring the punch over it. You then add additional ice and pour in the carbonated water when you are ready to serve.
    I suggest adding a small bag of ice to a punch bowl, adding your punch and then carbonated soda just before party time.
  • If you want to keep this in the refrigerator, keep the punch and carbonated soda separate until ready to drink. Then mix a glass at a time.

Notes

*It's really hard to go wrong with the amount of pineapple.Β  It doesn't have to be exact and can be increased or decreased based on preference.
**I'm assuming this should be Maraschino cherries.Β  If not, be sure to pit the fresh cherries before use.
***The recipe did not distinguish if the lemon was an ingredient IN the punch or a garnish.Β  I zested the lemon,Β  added the lemon zest and the sliced lemon to the blender.
