Sparkling Punch

With the heat last week, punch sounded so good and refreshing. So for Father's Day, along with the Root Beer my husband loves, I made this punch. I didn't expect it to be fantastic with so few ingredients, so I was surprised when it was delicious. The flavors blended so well and the soda added the right amount of kick. And this is so easy to make ahead. Just add the soda right before serving.

Sparkling Punch

2 cans (12 oz sizes) frozen pink lemonade concentrate, thawed
8 cups white cranberry juice cocktail
4 cups club soda
4 cups ginger ale

Mix pink lemonade and white cranberry juices together well in a large pitcher. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour or up to 24 hours. Stir in sodas just before serving.
Garnish with Mint sprigs, if desired

"Live each season as it passes; breathe the air, drink the drink, taste the fruit, and resign yourself to the influences of each."
-Henry David Thoreau

Re reading my post, I sounded like I did make the root beer. Sorry about that. But if I come across a good recipe, I'll pass it along. Homemade root beer has got to be good stuff.
