Fairy Punch

Prep Time 15 minutes

Ingredients

  • ¼ of a fresh pineapple, cubed (approimately 1 ¼ 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
  • ½ 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.  It doesn't have to be exact and can be increased or decreased based on preference.
**I'm assuming this should be Maraschino cherries.  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.  I zested the lemon,  added the lemon zest and the sliced lemon to the blender.
